Diversity & Inclusion
We all have something worth bringing to the table.
We believe that who you are as a person makes you uniquely capable of contributing in a way no one else can. Every day we strive to foster a diverse and inclusive workplace where everyone feels welcome, valued, seen and heard. Diversity and inclusion is part of our company culture — from the way we support our colleagues and clients to the ways we show up for our communities.
The time for diversity and inclusion is now.
Our long-standing initiative, Inclusion Now! (IN!) was put in place to ensure we’re holding ourselves accountable, meeting our belonging goals, and setting new goals as we grow. Our IN! Committee has been critical in helping create a safe and inclusive workplace. Members work to establish diversity and inclusion key performance indicators (KPIs) and regularly revisit them to ensure our efforts are making an impact.
The IN! mission statement: Better Together
To create a diverse and inclusive environment that includes our clients, colleagues, and community; where individual ideas, knowledge, and perspectives are accepted and respected. To create a safe environment for all colleagues to be heard, share their honest opinions, and feel valued; Because People Matter!
Supporting diversity through Colleague Resource Groups.
We’re always working to provide support for all minority groups represented by BPMers, including LGBTQIA+ and non-binary team members. One way we do that is by enabling colleagues to find common ground through Colleague Resource Groups (CRGs).
Our current CRGs and their missions:
- AAPI Colleague Resource Group

Empowering your journey to the C-Suite.
Our leaders work to implement and share best practices around helping women and minority groups be successful in their careers. We strive to elevate diverse groups of people — women, LGBTQ, minorities and under-represented groups of all ages and abilities — into leadership roles across the firm. In fact, BPM has been recognized many times over as the “Best CPA Firm for Women,” thanks to our focus on equitable opportunities and women’s leadership initiatives.

Supporting the women in our workforce.
59% of our workforce (including 14% of the Management Committee and 25% of our partners) are women — with 27% identifying as minorities.
25% of our partners and 30% of our board come from diverse ethnic backgrounds. We represent countless countries and even more cultures across the firm.
We’re putting our promises into action.
We’re committed to attracting and retaining diverse talent whose rich backgrounds and perspectives inspire them to think, work and act in unique and innovative ways. And we’re always striving to find new ways to lift up every voice within our organization.
This year, we’re expanding that commitment to promote the values of diversity and belonging not only internally, but also in our vendor and client networks.
