DIVERSITY, INCLUSION & EQUITY LEADER PROFILE:
TONY AKSA - NATIONAL BANK OF CANADA
What you see happening in Ukraine at the moment is what happened in Tony’s birth country of Lebanon. After surviving 15 years of civil war, Tony arrived in Canada in his early 20’s with no family or friends by his side. After 35 years in his host country, Tony built an amazing life for himself and is grateful for the promising future he sees for his children.
When it comes to diversity and inclusion in the workplace, Tony’s has made it his mission to ensure that other immigrants have the same privilege he had. Just like his employer, National Bank of Canada, Tony is committed to ensuring everyone has a fair opportunity at the Bank and in society at large.
In his own words; “I feel like I owe a huge debt to this amazing society who took me in, that I can never pay back. That is why 19 years ago, I joined the board of directors of the Cedar Cancer Foundation, which was founded by the Lebanese community 56 years ago. I see it as a great gift to my host society, and a way to thank everyone who made me feel welcome.”
