Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at BDT

We are committed to placing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) at the heart of our organization. It’s embedded into our workplace culture. It informs how we serve clients, particularly those who have been historically underserved by the public benefits system. Above all, it drives our work to build a more accessible, equitable social safety net.

Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), created and led by BDT staff, help us leverage our diversity to support each other and improve our organization.
