Podcast Episode 2 – People Who Have a Disability: The “Secret Weapon” for Businesses

In this episode, we explore why people who have a disability are the “secret weapon,” or, “secret sauce,” for businesses — and just what that means. A conversation with two C-Suite business leaders: Paul M. Clark and Derek Burleton of TD.

Paul is President of TD Direct Investing and Executive Vice-President of TD Bank Group. He’s also chair of TD’s People With Disabilities Committee, and is on TD’s Diversity Leadership Council.

Derek is TD Vice-President and Deputy Chief Economist. He’s also the co-author of an October 2019 TD Economics report titled, Canadians With Disabilities: Seizing the Opportunity.

Both Paul and Derek have been with TD for decades. In this episode, they also discuss the diversity and inclusion (D&I) evolution within the bank that they are still witnessing; where TD is right now on D&I; and the future direction of D&I at TD.
