BMO Financial Group honored with 2016 Chicago Scholars Diversity Award

Each year, Chicago Scholars recognizes one of our Corporate Partners for their ongoing and exceptional commitment to developing a workplace inclusive of diversity and for supporting diversity in leadership.

As a Corporate Partner, BMO Financial Group has joined us in breaking down the barriers that stigmatize first generation and under-resourced students from being achievers and leaders.  BMO Harris Bank has proven themselves as leaders in the Diversity and Inclusion space and in the Chicago Scholars community.

By championing best practices in their own operations, BMO has committed to taking direct action in creating a culture that is inclusive of diversity that is so vital to our Chicago community. BMO has also been a strong supporter and believer in the talent pipeline of Chicago Scholars.

BMO Financial Group:

  • Provides Scholars with job shadowing, internship, and employment opportunities.
  • Participates in our career exploration workshops and events
  • Engages their employees as volunteers
  • Joined our leadership team at the board level

We were pleased to present BMO Harris Bank with the 2016 Chicago Scholars Diversity Award at our annual First Look Career Exploration and Conference on July 27, 2016. We look forward to our continued partnership as we work toward our shared vision of a city powered by diverse leaders from every neighborhood!
