Advance diversity and equity at BBH, supported by a strong culture of inclusion, accountability, and employee engagement.
Seeking and supporting viewpoints that are informed by different experiences and perspectives ultimately leads to better risk management, innovation, and client outcomes. Exceptional client service is the foundation of our business and at the heart of our culture. Our employees’ different backgrounds, life experiences, and ways of thinking help us to better understand each other and our clients. Our commitment to an equitable, inclusive, and collaborative culture, grounded in independent peer review, helps us avoid group think and fosters the highest levels of employee and client satisfaction.
We believe it takes conscious and sustained effort to cultivate a workplace where all employees feel valued, included, and empowered to deliver their best. The norms, power structures, and inequities in society can easily become embedded in any organization. Creating a culture where every individual can contribute their full potential requires investigating systems, processes, and behaviors within an organization to uncover gaps and using that knowledge to ensure an equitable approach.
By focusing our diversity, equity, and inclusion program on three key pillars – workforce, workplace, and marketplace – we’re building our capacity for talent, enhancing our inclusive culture, strengthening cultural dexterity, and leveraging the power of fresh thinking.
The Partnership of BBH has created a DEI roadmap for what we want to achieve, and we’re progressing toward that together as a firm. To advance those initiatives, I am proud of my role as a Black Affinity Network leader and our efforts to bring in speakers with diverse backgrounds, so we can learn from what they’re doing well and allow them to learn from us.
