Brittany Owens, Associate Director, Global Banking and Markets (GBM), shares her experience in our Parental Advisor Liaison (PAL) program, targeted to expectant or new parents across GBM to ease their transition into parental leave.

 

 

At Scotiabank, we strive to create an inclusive culture where every employee is enabled to reach their fullest potential.

 

The GBM Parental Advisor Liaison (PAL) program was developed to improve the parental transition for employees. It is a voluntary, bespoke mentorship program, where an expectant or new parent (mentee) is paired with an experienced working parent (mentor) from within Global Banking and Markets.

 

The mentor helps to support the mentee as they prepare for parental leave, and provides guidance with respect to finding balance between competing work and personal priorities upon their return from leave. Establishing this relationship before the mentee’s planned leave helps to set the foundation of support throughout the leave and beyond, and forge a continued connection between the mentee and the mentor.
