Beyond the Bio Podcast
In this episode, Adrienne King, executive vice president of Bain’s Americas Talent Management, and Modupe Akinola, associate professor of management at Columbia Business School and former Bainie, talk about how they built a framework for us to recruit and retain our Blacks at Bain (BABs) community.
Hear their journeys from how they got started at Bain to how they pioneered and implemented a pre-MBA program for Black recruits going to business school, known today as ExperienceBain Diversity, organized annual conferences for our Black community and developed our firm’s infrastructure to support underrepresented individuals.
With BABs all over North America and different parts of the globe, Adrienne and Modupe’s early work set the foundation and we’re seeing the fruits of their labor within BABs and other affinity groups across the firm.

In Beyond the Bio, Keith Bevans, partner and global head of consultant recruiting, dives deeper into the stories of some extraordinary Bain people, from their perspectives.
