Affinity Groups
EnVision, WAVES, and StepAhead are the three BMO Affinity Groups that seek to foster an inclusive and barrier free workplace for persons with disabilities.

EnVision focuses on addressing issues for people who are partially sighted or blind and has led the way for adaptive technologies and solutions in the workplace. Cycle For Sight is the major event that EnVision promotes to raise awareness and funds for The Foundation for Fighting Blindness. WAVES is an active affinity group for the Deaf, deafened and hard of hearing employees at BMO which includes participation in Mayfest, an annual celebration of deaf culture. StepAhead focuses on identifying and solving barriers related to mobility and participates annually in the People in Motion event.

All three BMO Affinity Groups welcome all BMO employees to participate. Mentorship, networking, and a fun social atmosphere are some of the most common reasons why people get involved in these dynamic and important groups at BMO.

Task Force on Employment of People with Disabilities
BMO's people strategies focus on the importance of talented, engaged and high performing employees. Developing an inclusive and supportive workplace, which reflects the diversity of the communities in which we do business, are objectives that are explicitly aligned with strategic initiatives from the top and, subsequently, are carefully measured and connected to performance.
