LGBT Network

With a perfect score of 100, BCG has been named one of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality” for ten consecutive years.

We focus on supporting LGBT individuals during the recruiting process, throughout their careers at BCG, and after they have left the firm through alumni networking. We actively recruit top LGBT talent and provide a supportive environment for every employee at our company to become a leader for positive change. BCG’s LGBT Network (LGBTN) offers extensive career-development support, mentorship, and networking opportunities—including an annual conference—to connect with and learn from fellow LGBT professionals. Whether you choose to be public or private about your sexuality, BCG provides the support you need to grow as a person and as a professional.

At the local level, there are a variety of activities, from affiliation events such as happy hours to career coaching, education, and community service.

LGBT Network was quick to include me in the community. Through this group, I have made connections in Boston and beyond.

The HRC score and LGBT Network were definitely some of the things that drew me to BCG when I was considering a position here. I felt instantly welcomed by the LGBT BST Network. Some of my most helpful mentors and closest friends have come out of the Network. It's been great to see how open BCG is to suggestions from the group and how supportive they are of the Network growing.

The LGBT Network is an incredible network of mentors, thought-partners and friends whom have helped me navigate and shape my career during almost a decade with BCG. As I look forward to building a family, I am thrilled to know that BCG's tireless efforts to be a the forefront of LGBT rights and career flexibility for parents, whether gay or straight, will be provide me the support I need to combine raising a family with a deeply challenging and meaningful career.

BCG has long led by example in our efforts to create an inclusive environment for our LGBT employees:

  • In 1994, we were one of the first companies to offer benefits to employees with same-sex partners.
  • In 1998, the LGBT Network (LGBTN) was formed. LGBTN is open to all BCG employees, with three levels of membership based on each member’s personal level of comfort with being “out.”
  • In 2011, BCG introduced tax equalization for health care benefits paid to the partners of same-sex employees. This offer applies for same-sex partners, regardless of their marital status, in states such as New York that have legalized same-sex marriage. Following this roll-out, in 2012, BCG added gender transition support for transsexual employees to every employee's health benefits package.
  • In 2013, the LGBTN began rolling out a new program aimed at supporting our global business services team (BST). The LGBTN recognized that our nonconsulting team members have different career development needs, avenues for affiliation, and local business environments. We aim to connect our LGBT BST employees and provide a forum that addresses their unique experiences within and outside of BCG. Since the rollout of the program, we have seen LGBTN membership among BST employees more than double.
  • In 2015, BCG joined 378 other organizations in an employer amicus brief to the US Supreme Court, urging for full marriage equality in the United States.
  • In 2016, Tom Wurster, former senior partner and cofounder of BCG's LGBT Network, founded the first LGBT Executive Leadership Program at the Stanford Graduate School of Business
