Proud to be an Ally

In celebration of LGBT Pride Month, BBH's Pride Network held an event to celebrate its Allies.  The session detailed the importance of allies who advocate or and support members of a community other than their own; reaching across differences to achieve mutual goals. Through real-world examples, personal stories, and round table discussions, BBHers considered more ways to create a supportive workplace and bravely asked questions to strengthen their ability to be smart, energetic, compassionate, and dedicated Allies.  During the month long celebration, employees “came out” as Allies at BBH to reinforce the Firm’s commitment for a diverse, accepting, tolerant and inclusive global workplace for all.

The Parenting Network hosted an event sharing tips to monitor children's online activities to ensure their time remains in balance with school work, family time, and most of all, to keep them safe.

BANC Events_Lean In

Lean In Circles Raise Awareness

Lean In circles hosted by our Women’s Network bring together participants from all “walks” of life to openly share the challenges in and outside the workplace and to seek potential development opportunities. Participants have found that men and women share many of the same concerns, though they may come at them from slightly different vantage points. The number of men involved has helped create awareness across genders of the challenges we all face, providing greater understanding and the dynamics needed to create positive change.
