Cherry Hill, N.J., October 1, 2021 – TD Bank, America's Most Convenient Bank®, was honored as a 2021 NOD Leading Disability Employer at the National Organization on Disability (NOD)’s Annual Forum. This is TD's fifth consecutive year receiving the NOD Leading Disability Employer Seal which distinguishes the nation's top companies for measuring and achieving strong talent outcomes for people with disabilities. NOD highlights TD Bank
and 66 other leading organizations with this recognition for their commitment to building an inclusive workforce by adopting best-in-class disability inclusion practices.
"Disability inclusion is a critical part of our success and this recognition demonstrates that we are doing the right things to hire, support and promote people with disabilities," said Chris Giamo, Executive Sponsor of Individuals with Diverse Abilities and Head of Commercial Banking. "We are proud to celebrate our ongoing efforts to break down barriers and create opportunities for everyone. We owe this achievement to our dedicated colleagues who help us make a positive impact for our customers and communities."
The announcement was made last night in front of an audience of hundreds of diversity and inclusion leaders from global companies at NOD’s virtual “Disability Inclusion in the Next Normal” forum.
“Congratulations to all the 2021 Leading Disability Employers for creating an inclusive and diverse workplace that allows people with disabilities to be successful,” said NOD President Carol Glazer. “NOD’s mission is to ensure that no ability is wasted, that all Americans, including those of us with disabilities, have an opportunity for enterprise, achievement, and earnings and that corporate America knows how to put our talents to work. These winning organizations have stepped up and are doing just that. We want to applaud their leadership and thank them for their commitment to hiring and retaining people with disabilities.”
