Part of our DEI goal is to amplify our impact by using our voice, influence, and philanthropy as a platform to catalyze change outside the firm. To do this, we build coalitions to amplify commitments within industry and invest in diverse communities and customer segments.
At the heart of this effort is a focus on leveraging our expertise, partnerships, and networks—including our strong base of alumni and clients—to accelerate change. One such example is BCG Spark, a program that pairs BCG volunteers with growing minority- and women-owned businesses. Run in partnership with Majira Project, a Boston-based nonprofit, the program has so far supported more than 140 companies and helped to create more than 1,000 jobs.
We also partner with the Southern Communities Initiative, a corporate consortium with the goal of helping to solve endemic challenges facing communities of color in the South. And as a launch partner in Management Leadership for Tomorrow’s Racial Equity at Work certification program, we are taking an evidence-based, comprehensive approach to promoting racial equity across representation, workplace culture, business practices, and investments, and we have been recognized with Black Equity at Work Bronze Certification and Hispanic Equity at Work Plan Approval.
Numerous external and independent organizations have recognized BCG’s commitment to DEI. We are proud to be recognized for both the excellence of our work and robust culture we are building.
