Forbes ranks BMO one of America’s Best Employers for Women in 2020


For the second consecutive year, BMO Harris Bank has been recognized by Forbes Magazine as one of America’s Best Employers for Women.

The selection is based on an independent survey from a sample of more than 75,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people in their U.S. operations. Survey questions are related to topics such as parental leave, pay equity and working conditions. Evaluation is also based in part on the number of women in leadership positions at the company.

“BMO is committed to zero barriers to inclusion and aims to ensure the path to success is equally open for all. We are a leader in diversity and inclusion for our customers, colleagues and communities, and are continually identifying and removing barriers in banking,” said Tracie Morris, BMO’s U.S. Chief HR and Inclusion Officer. “We are proud to be recognized for the second consecutive year on Forbes’ list of America’s Best Employers for Women as we continue to boldly grow the good.”

BMO was also recognized this year on the Forbes Best Employers for Diversity list for the second year in a row, and was included on the Bloomberg Financial Services Gender Equality Index for the fifth year in a row.

At BMO, diversity and inclusion are part of our core values, and we work to ensure our employees and customers feel valued, respected and heard. Find out more about all the great news related to diversity and inclusion at BMO.
