"I think that there are more men than women, but still quite a good ratio, and they are making a huge effort to recruit more women. I was told maternity leave is one year and you get paid most of your pay. There are also workers from a variety of backgrounds in general."

"There is a big push to increase the number of women in the firm. To the extent that we were asked to recommend a friend who would be suitable for the internship next year, however, we were only given the option to recommend a female friend. There was also a networking breakfast for female interns to meet senior female business figures."

"The company has very strong diversity networks with all members of the business from interns to MDs, and are encouraged to get involved and support the groups. These include diversity groups for the LGBT community, a women's network, childcare initiatives, ethnic minorities and more."
Intern, London
"I think that diversity here is exceptionally good: LGBT rights are very active; women's rights to be in the work place are at the forefront of a lot of RBC activities and the recruitment process seems fair and unbiased."
Intern, London
"RBC has various programmes to do with promoting women. They promote diversity more than any other bank I have researched, and this is another key reason I decided to apply for RBC. Ethnic minority and LGBT programmes are promoted as well."
Intern, London
"RBC hosted a women-in-banking evening giving women an advantage over men in applying for the firm. They also have an Academy programme where they employ able A-Level students from all backgrounds."
Intern, London
"There is certainly no under representation of ethnic minorities, other nationalities and LGBT employees in my opinion. As with any IB there are fewer women in certain functions such as trading, but they actively try to attract more women."
