RBC Capital Markets Mosaic x R.A.I.N. Speaker Series

We are excited to announce that R.A.I.N. Career Institute ("RAIN") has established a partnership with RBC Capital Markets Mosaic ("RBCCM Mosaic"). On Friday, September 18th, RAIN and RBCCM Mosaic co-hosted its first speaker panel event where RAIN participants were provided the opportunity to learn about each panelist's background and engage in the discussion via Q&A. Each panelist had a unique international background and the discussion was focused on how they were able to successfully integrate into the North American workforce.

RBCCM Mosaic is an employee-led resource group focused on promoting a safe and inclusive environment for employees of all origins, ethnicities, race, religion, background and education. With ~200 members across 24 individual business groups, RBCCM Mosaic is committed to supporting the retention and advancement of these employees and leveraging the benefits of diversity and inclusion. 

This is the first of many speaker series to come with RBCCM Mosaic. Become a member and follow us on social media to tune into the next event!
