I'm proud of the actions we've taken to provide an environment that promotes women's full potential," said Brigitte Hébert, Executive Vice-President – Employee Experience at National Bank.

“We are proud to recognize National Bank and the other 417 companies included in the 2022 GEI for their commitment to transparency and setting a new standard in gender-related data reporting,” said Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg and Founding Chairman of the U.S. 30% Club. “Even though the threshold for inclusion in the GEI has risen, the member list continues to grow.
