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.

BCG has seven affinity networks for staff members to come together in the pursuit of growth, mentorship, and affiliation. Two of those networks (Pride@BCG and Women@BCG) are global and the other five (AccessAbility@BCG, AsianDiversity@BCG, Black+Latinx@BCG, Families@BCG, Veterans@BCG) are specific to North America. In addition, we have a growing number of ally initiatives to further support our networks.


Veterans@BCG is a group made up of North American-based BCGers with a military and/or an intelligence background. BCG deeply values the talent, training, and proven leadership skills that veterans bring to the organization. BCG supports its veterans with a growing network of people who understand their experience and will help them grow into business-minded leaders. The network also raises awareness of consulting as a career path for veterans, supports veterans through their transition into a civilian career, and helps veterans understand the value of their experience and how to leverage their unique skills to succeed at BCG.

Bridge to Consulting Workshop and Externship Program

Created for current freshmen and sophomores from groups underrepresented in leadership positions and in consulting, the Bridge to Consulting Workshop and the Externship Program offer the opportunity to experience BCG.


Growing Future Leaders Internship Program

This program aims to identify, support, develop, and retain top Black/African American and Hispanics/Latinx individuals who are currently sophomores, preparing them to become leaders in consulting and the global business community.


Africa Talent Program

The Africa Talent program offers exceptional candidates with strong ties to (or interests in) Africa an opportunity to spend one to two years at one of our US- or Europe-based offices before joining one of our offices based in Africa.

Our goal is to increase diversity, unlocking the potential of every BCGer and client team member. To do so, we invest in people and in the research that reveals which tools, programs, and cultural changes are necessary to deliver sustainable impact.
