LONDON – 11 November 2021 – Bain & Company has won the Corporate Award at the 2021 Women of the Future Awards. A judging panel recognised Bain & Company in the UK for supporting and nurturing future female leaders in its workforce.
“This award is truly an honour and a recognition of our commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive culture,” said James Hadley, Bain & Company’s UK Managing Partner. “We are committed to supporting the ambitions of our female workforce enabling women at Bain to thrive both at work and beyond. Our recruitment programmes, equal parental leave policy, flexibility options and overall culture of support are key components to that.”
Bain & Company is an industry leader in the UK in offering equal paid parental leave. New parents – regardless of gender – are eligible to receive up to 52 weeks of leave with the first 29 weeks fully paid.
Bain & Company is committed to recruiting at parity and to retaining and promoting women at the same level as men. In 2018 Bain & Company launched the True North Scholarship for Women to support exceptional female students and encourage them to enter management consulting, an industry where women are traditionally underrepresented.
“Women are underrepresented in our industry, especially at the most senior levels and we are taking concrete steps to change that.” said Nishma Gosrani OBE, partner and leader of STRATOS, Bain & Company’s network for senior female executives in financial services. “We are committed to building a culture on an open and transparent foundation that supports our diverse female talent at all levels to thrive at Bain.”
Founded by Pinky Lilani CBE DL in 2006, The Women of the Future Awards are the platform for successful young women in Britain. Now in their sixteenth year, the awards continue to unearth and recognise the inspirational stars of tomorrow across diverse sectors.

Bain & Company has earned recognition around the world as a great place to work.
