To have the most successful and well-rounded industry, the representation of marginalized groups in the industry must improve. To invoke this change, the majority must help, support and advocate for the minority. If engaged correctly, allies hold the power and the key to stimulate positive change
This week’s episode is all about the importance of having allies for visible minorities in the workplace. I discussed extensively with Lovelyn Toyo how newcomers, immigrants, and international students can find allies that would support their careers.
Lovelyn was born and raised in Nigeria, where she began her career in capital markets. Spanning over a decade, she worked for various commercial banks where she handled several roles in the front office, sales, asset, and liability management and also undertook some transformational projects.
She moved to Canada in November 2018 and joined RBC Capital Markets in September 2019 through the Women in Capital Markets (WCM) Return to Bay Street Program (RTBS) as a 2019 Award Recipient.
She has a B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Lagos and is an executive education alumna of the Lagos Business School.
This is one episode you should not miss and share with everyone you love.
