Black employees deserve safe spaces at work

#NEWSYOUCANUSE: It’s officially Black History Month, and today on News You Can Use, we’re discussing how beneficial it is when companies create safe spaces for their Black employees. Today, I sat down with Naki Osutei and Peter Robinson, Co-Chairs of TD Bank Groups’ Black Employee Network to discuss the intentional and actionable efforts the Bank is making to help enhance the experiences of Black colleagues, customers and communities.

While there’s still work to be done, TD is making progress on its commitment to combat anti-Black racism and is making an impact. For example, TD has established a Black Customer Experience Segment to better serve Black customers and strengthen the financial services and support provided by TD to Black communities. And in September 2021, in an effort to help address equity gaps experienced by Black-owned business, TD announced a $10-million commitment over the next five years to the Black Opportunity Fund (BOF). This donation is one of the largest contributions in Canada to a Black-focused, Black-led and Black-serving organization.

This month, viewers can explore and take part in over 90 events and programs across Canada. From showcasing local initiatives that TD supports, to virtual seminars and webinars, visit http://td.com/walkthewalk to learn more. COVID-19 protocols were followed during the filming of this segment.
