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.
“It's so evident from team brainstorming meetings, to our features, to the daily news and service posts that we produce, that the editors here at BDG are authentically passionate about ensuring our content is reflective of a diversity of perspectives and identities. There is so much care and thought that goes into everything we produce, and I'm proud to work with editors who are so mindful about the impact of our content.” — Amanda Chan, Vice President, Content Strategy
