Bain & Company is proud of its long and visible support of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans and intersex (GLBTI) community. Today, we take another step in advancing the cause for equality by committing to uphold the United Nations’ Standards of Conduct for Business.
These standards, aimed at tackling discrimination against LGBTI people, are closely aligned with the firm’s goals to defend against discrimination and unconscious bias and to create a culture in which individuals can bring their authentic selves to work every day – no matter where in the world they are.
Diversity and inclusion are imperative to Bain & Company’s success. We work with some of the world’s leading companies to solve their most complex business problems, and we firmly believe that the most innovative solutions often come from bringing together different perspectives, experiences, and points of view. As such, we take many measures to attract and develop a team that both represents and fully embraces this diversity. This approach results in more breakthrough client results and more fulfilling, rewarding experiences for Bain employees.
The UN’s LGBTI standards serve as important and valuable guidelines that will enable Bain & Company and more than 200 other supporters to be the engines of change, continuing to foster diversity and promote a culture of respect and equality – both in the workplace and in the communities where we operate.
