In a world dominated by men, women are now increasingly sought after.
HSBC Bank Canada and Toronto-Dominion Bank have both appointed more women to their boards, moves that follow Royal Bank of Canada’s decision to appoint to new females this summer.
Nancy Anthony is the newest member of HSBC’s board. She was previously the president and chief executive officer of the Canadian Bankers Association. That announcement came after TD appointed Karen Maidment, a former chief financial and administrative officer of Bank of Montreal, to its board last week.
And back in June, RBC appointed Heather Munroe Blum and Bridget van Kralingen to its board.
Still, even after these announcements, this world is very much run by men. On average, only one-thirds of the three banks' boards are women. But progress is being made.
