Bain's Commitment to Promote Racial and Social Equity

Bain's Commitment to Promote Racial and Social Equity

Judge us by our actions today, tomorrow, and in the future. These are the new commitments we’re making to promote racial and social equity both within our firm and in our broader communities, over and above our existing investments in diversity, equity, and inclusion

Invest to drive meaningful, sustained change outside of our four walls
  • Commit $100 million in global pro-bono investment over five years to promote racial equity and social justice
  • Add Racial Equity and Social Justice as a fourth pillar of our Global Social Impact platform, and collaborate with The Bridgespan Group to identify opportunities to bring our capabilities to leaders and organizations focused on equity
  • Launch a dedicated diversity, equity, and inclusion practice area to support our corporate clients in their own DEI commitments and efforts
  • Match $1 million in employee donations to organizations focused on racial equity and social justice
Engage, educate and mobilize every employee to embed racial equity into the fabric of Bain
  • Be more aggressive and transparent in accelerating our own DEI outcomes, starting with the North American Blacks at Bain team and expanding to all under-represented populations
  • Accelerate every Bain employee’s journey in racial equity and social justice, including committing Juneteenth as an annual Americas-wide day of learning and reflection
  • More closely manage the DEI impacts of how we run our business, focusing on: our clients, our offerings/intellectual property, our supply chain, and our partners

We know our actions alone won’t solve the systemic issues of racism, but together we can be a force for positive change.
