Bainies can rally around issues they are passionate about by joining one of our global affiliation groups.
The Global Development Network (GDEV) is a grassroots network that connects and mobilizes hundreds of Bainies who share a passion for global development. The network holds knowledge-building events and offers opportunities for Bainies to support developing-market social enterprises.
Bain’s Green Teams leverage office-level “green communities”—Bainies who are passionate about reducing our environmental impact—to champion sustainability strategies. These employee-led teams identify and implement environmentally sustainable practices in their local offices and share best practices globally.
Bain is proud to share that we have led the industry as a 100% CarbonNeutral Company since 2012, offsetting all emissions, including client travel.
Another opportunity for Bainies to make a difference is through nonprofit casework. Through these "Extra 10%" projects, volunteer teams provide consulting advice to nonprofits and social enterprises.
We have led hundreds of Extra 10% cases over the past few years, providing unique professional development opportunities while positively impacting local communities.
Social impact externships provide our people with deep, hands-on experience working for a wide variety of NGOs, social enterprises and public sector organizations around the world.
We provide opportunities to work with our key partner organizations, such as Acumen, Endeavor, Ethiopian Agribusiness Accelerator Platform and KIPP. Externs can also work with alternative organizations based on the causes they are personally passionate about. Our externs support critical strategic projects and drive meaningful results—this past year we received a 100% Net Promoter Score from our extern partner organizations.
We embrace a grassroots tradition of fostering entrepreneurial community service, encouraging employees to rally for the causes they care most about.
Bain offers several opportunities to volunteer with our community partners, including office-wide Community Impact Days, which are hosted by most offices around the globe.
In 2017, two-thirds of all Bainies were involved in some form of social impact initiative across the globe, contributing over 30,000 hours of volunteer service and raising $1.5 million for local nonprofits—in addition to the countless hours and millions of dollars invested through our pro bono casework.
