Diversity & Inclusion
At Bain, we achieve excellence through diversity and inclusion. We've found that the best solution to a complex problem often comes from a different perspective or a fresh point of view.
Diversity is key to our mission of building extraordinary teams that deliver unparalleled results for our firm and our clients. We strive to recruit people with exceptional talent and ability—and to celebrate their differences. We develop and train them, and then give them the opportunity to be the best they can be. We're committed to making Bain a place where everyone has the potential to succeed.
Bain affinity groups are active networks that underscore our inclusive work environment, offering their members additional levels of connection via coaching, mentoring and professional development. These networks include members from both Bain and the Bridgespan Group, our sister nonprofit consulting organization.
