Diversity & Inclusion
At BDG, we are committed to equipping our employees at every level with the tools and resources needed to connect us closer to the diverse communities we serve and to each other. We place value in our people and understand that mentorship and fostering career development drives equal opportunity for success.
We are committed to building a workplace that welcomes all backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences, and one that strives to provide a deep sense of belonging for all employees.
"As the Chief People Officer at BDG, I believe that a truly inclusive and diverse workplace is one where everyone's unique backgrounds, experiences and perspectives are not only welcomed but celebrated. At BDG, we recognize the importance of creating an environment where everyone can thrive — our dedication to diversity, equity, and inclusion is not just about ticking boxes, but it's a fundamental aspect of our organizational culture that drives our success. This commitment is evident in the award-winning content we create, fostering innovative and creative work that resonates with our diverse audiences and clients." — Trisha Dearborn, Chief People Officer
