Womxn at Bain (WAB) aims to be inclusive of all women and gender non-conforming (GNC) individuals who wish to be a part of our WAB community.
The use of “womxn” emerged from a desire to be explicit about our commitment to inclusion within WAB. After many dialogues with our people, including those who identify as part of these communities, we carefully defined our own understanding of and purpose for Womxn at Bain. Our ‘x’ serves as a visual symbol to welcome all GNC individuals who feel they would benefit from participating in WAB. This is entirely separate from trans women, who have always been recognized as women at Bain.
We recognize that a name does not make us inherently more inclusive, but we view it as an important step, in parallel with the other actions we’re taking, to continue on our journey of building a culture of extraordinary teams.
Our overarching goal for WAB is to make Bain the best place to work for our members. That mission is defined not only by supporting their career success, but by making sure they truly thrive—that they grow and flourish in both their professional and personal lives. Each person's path will be shaped by their own priorities, but every member can count on our commitment and support.
Across every industry, consulting service, and geography, our WAB members are making a huge impact daily for our clients. Their expertise and thought leadership fuel our remarkable success, and play a critical role in defining our culture.
