TORONTO, March 7, 2023 /CNW/ - American Express Canada has been named one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers by Mediacorp Canada Inc. for the eighth year in a row. The recognition reinforces our continued commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) and cultivating an inclusive and diverse workplace for colleagues so they can deliver their best for our customers, the communities we serve and each other.

"DE&I is embedded in our company values and plays a key role in everything we do," says Annette Kingsley, Vice President, Colleague Experience at Amex Canada. "When you join Team Amex, you join a community of colleagues with diverse backgrounds and experiences where you're encouraged to bring your authentic self to work. DE&I is woven into every aspect of the colleague experience and makes us proud to be recognized for our efforts for the eighth year in a row."

Amex Canada has continued to advance its commitment to DE&I over the past year, ensuring accountability to its progress at the highest levels of the organization. We are proud to have the Amex Canada DE&I Council that brings a dedicated and consistent focus across the various business units and colleague groups.  Driven by our global DE&I strategy, our local approach continues to see significant progress and impact, notably:

  • Colleague Networks: There are currently 12 highly engaged Colleague Networks at Amex Canada that bring together people who share common experiences, backgrounds and interests. Colleagues are welcome to join any network whether they are a member of the community or want to learn more and show their support. Currently, two in five colleagues engage in at least one network.
  • Support for BIPOC entrepreneurs: Now entering its second year, Amex Canada continues to support BIPOC businesses through Blueprint, a mentorship and grant program for business owners across Canada.
  • Career Growth & Development: We offer a range of relevant learning and development opportunities with resources, feedback, and support so colleagues can build meaningful careers that use their talents and strengths to make an impact.
