Womxn at Bain (WAB)
Womxn at Bain (WAB) is an affinity group for those at Bain who identify as women or gender non-conforming. Our community is diverse, intersectional, supportive, and engaging. We provide tailored support across our diverse members, including mentorship and programs that create pathways for success at Bain. We take great pride in the meaningful bonds this group creates, and the vast contributions women-identifying individuals make across the organization.
A core piece of our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion
Bain has been investing in diversity, equity, and inclusion for more than 30 years. Beginning with our early affinity communities, we have expanded into a wide range of comprehensive programs to create a culture of inclusion where every Bainie can thrive.
This group’s ambition is to ensure Bain remains the best place to work for its members. WAB provides members an added layer of tailored support and a space to form meaningful relationships, drive connectivity, and build community. While we take pride in the deep bonds created within WAB, we also build connections with other affinity groups and share with the broader firm.
“WAB is about connectedness and belonging. You have a forum to talk to other women who are going through similar things and are in similar positions.”
