Black at Bain (BAB) is an affinity group for members of the Black diaspora across Bain. Our mission is to create a culture of inclusion, belonging and support for our people, our clients, and our community. We live this by providing tailored support across our diverse members, including mentorship and extensive programming that provides pathways for success inside Bain and for our broader Black community. Our members take pride in the deep bonds created within Black at Bain and sharing the vast contributions of our culture across the organization.
A core piece of our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion
Bain has been investing in diversity, equity, and inclusion for more than 30 years. Beginning with our early affinity communities, we have expanded into a wide range of comprehensive programs to create a culture of inclusion where every Bainie can thrive.
Black at Bain provides members an added layer of tailored support and a space to form meaningful relationships, drive connectivity, and build community. While we take pride in the deep bonds created within Black at Bain, we also build connections with other affinity groups and share about the diversity of Black culture with the broader firm.
“I reach out to our Black at Bain community to navigate big life events, tricky situations on a case, or thinking about my broader ambitions. They’re my cheerleaders.”
