Zabeen Hirji comments on workplace diversity

When Zabeen Hirji came to Canada in 1974, she never dreamed she would have the career she does today. Although the civil rights movement had pushed equality issues to the forefront, a Tanzanian immigrant like her had little chance of reaching her full potential in the business world.When she started working at Royal Bank of Canada in 1977, the bank had no female or visible minority executives. With some encouragement from one senior manager, though, she persevered, and gradually climbed the ranks. Today, Ms. Hirji sits on RBC’s executive committee as the head of HR.
