Diversity and Inclusion at BCG

Diversity and inclusion are more than our ambition. They’re our advantage.

At BCG, diversity is one of our core founding values. Passionate, open-minded people of all backgrounds, genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, ethnicities, expertise, and experience are fundamental to our success as they enable us to analyze problems from a broader perspective and challenge established ways of thinking.

We seek and hire top talent from around the globe, encourage mobility across our offices and among our functional groups, and provide opportunities for our people to come together to exchange perspectives. The result is an environment in which all individuals have an opportunity to flourish and succeed.

BCG has received numerous awards and recognition for our efforts to create a more inclusive, diverse organization.


One of our highest priorities is advancing our Women@BCG agenda: increasing the number, success, and satisfaction of women at the firm. We are encouraged by our progress and excited about what the future holds as we enhance opportunity, experience, and work-life integration for all our people.

Diversity at BCG

BCG offers a variety of mentoring, affiliation, and development programs designed to expand and enrich the careers of talent from different backgrounds, including Black, Asian American, Latinx employees, and many others.

Our diversity initiatives have earned numerous awards and recognitions, including top 50 and top 100 rankings from Diversity MBA and Black Enterprise magazines, respectively. We support and sponsor US organizations, such as MBA Jumpstart, Hispanic Scholarship Fund, Thurgood Marshall College Fund, Society for Hispanic Professional Engineers, and National Society of Black Engineers.

We recruit top graduates by coordinating career and interviewing workshops, presentations, lunches, and other events. Through undergraduate diversity programs, we provide opportunities to underrepresented minorities for mentorship, learning and development, and exposure to our work and culture.


BCG’s Ethnic Diversity Network mentored me from the moment I got my first round interview. The Network is comprised of the first people I reach out to when I need help or a laugh. I've grown from being a mentee in the network to helping mentor the next generation of BCGers. The ability to help develop and guide the future leaders of BCG has been one of the most rewarding opportunities I’ve had during my time here.” –Elena Bonifacio, Principal, New York
