Inclusion & Diversity
As certified Minority Business Enterprise(MBE), Bridgewater Consulting Group is deeply committed to inclusion and diversity.
Fostering a corporate culture that values inclusion and diversity is not a check-the-box exercise for us. It’s foundational. Our commitment to inclusion and diversity extends from the executive ranks to our hiring practices for all available roles.
Bridgewater Consulting Group’s focus to provide opportunities for a diverse and inclusive workforce extends beyond what is required by law. We state it directly within our Equal Opportunity Employer policy. This policy states that:
Bridgewater Consulting Group is an equal opportunity employer. We do not unlawfully discriminate against applicants for employment, such as an individual’s: age, race, color, national origin, legal relationship status (i.e., single, married, and civil/domestic partnership, separated, and divorced), sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, gender reassignment, pregnancy status, maternity/paternity status, religion, religious beliefs/non-beliefs, protected veteran status, disability, or any other status/characteristics that is protected by applicable law.
This policy applies to all terms, conditions, and privileges of employment, including recruitment, hiring, placement, compensation, promotion, discipline, and termination.
Relatedly, several laws that are enforced by the U.S. Equal Opportunity Employment Commission prohibit workplace discrimination. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that employers provide – among other things – reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals with disabilities unless to do so would cause undue hardship for the company.
This law applies to “qualified individuals with disabilities in job applications, procedures, hiring, firing, advancement, compensation, job training, and other things.”
Whenever possible, Bridgewater Consulting Group will make every reasonable accommodation for qualified individuals with disabilities to the extent required by law.
Why? It’s the right thing to do.
