RBC became a Zone Sponsor for the Innovation Cluster’s Virtual and Augmented Reality Zone in October last year, launching the zone beside the Cluster and its digital client Kavtek.
“RBC is excited to partner with the Innovation Cluster overall and as a ‘Zone’ Sponsor,” says Scott Mancini, Regional Vice President Kawartha-Lakeshore market.
RBC’s purpose is to help clients thrive and communities prosper with a vision to be among the world’s most trusted and successful financial institutions. They hold themselves to the highest standards through shared values. RBC looks to build trust and strive to have a positive economic, environmental and social impact and to provide responsible leadership wherever they operate.
RBC is responding to the unprecedented challenges today’s young people in Canada are facing. A shift to a skills economy, the pressures of automation and a reduction in entry-level jobs is seeing many youth leaving school unprepared and lacking the right skills, experience or the networks to help them successfully start their careers. They’re often caught in the ‘no experience, no job’ cycle.
”RBC Future Launch is an investment in our country’s young people and their future success,” says Mary DePaoli, EVP & Chief Marketing Officer. “When young people succeed, we all succeed. The time to invest in them is now. Over the next 10 years, we are dedicating our knowledge, skills and resources to help young people access meaningful employment through skills development, networking and work experience.”
