Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Bridgespan, our vision for a society characterized by equity and justice manifests as a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Racial equity lives at the center of this commitment, given the intersections of race and racism with inequity and injustice in the US and globally. This commitment increases the impact we have with our clients, strengthens our teams, and aligns with our values.  

  • Impact: Take an intentionally anti-racist approach to our work

  • Collaboration: Seek proximity to, partner with, and learn from experts and communities

  • Candor: Locate ourselves within systems and be self-aware of our own role as an organization and individuals in perpetuating racism

  • Respect: Take an asset-based approach to our work with communities of color

  • Passion: Relentlessly focus on a vision of justice, and be brave to pursue this vision
