Celebrating the Asian
​​​​​​​Community at BCG

Our employee resource groups give BCGers of Asian descent the chance to
come together to find a sense of community and access opportunities to
​​​​​​​help them thrive personally and professionally. 

Collective Community Empowerment

Our Asian community employee resource groups aim to give BCGers a supportive and inclusive environment — where everyone has the opportunity to succeed professionally and flourish personally. Members can find a strong sense of community and support one another through networking, mentorship, and career development. Our vast community is comprised of different nationalities, cultures, religions, and languages spanning all over Asia, yet we are all connected.

Meet BCGers

Members come from different backgrounds and have different roots. Their intertwining experiences come together to move the Asian community forward and achieve new heights.
“Home, that’s what AsianDiversity@BCG means to me. It means feeling like I belong at BCG. It means finding my place, finding my people, finding people who have lived shared experiences, and who will unite as a community to honor our collectivist roots and come together for a moment of grief or in a moment of celebration of everything we’ve achieved.”

 Ruhama Quadir
Project Leader
“AsianDiversity@BCG has been one of the key ways that I found my group at BCG – I’ve made many close friends across offices thanks to our national conferences – and its one of the main ways I stay in touch with new folks coming into my local office. The network has empowered me to make a difference for my Asian colleagues experience, and has been instrumental in giving me opportunities to contribute to the community’s well being.”

 Nicol Zhou
Managing Director and Partner 
“AsianDiversity@BCG has been an amazing support network. One which recognizes and celebrates our individual differences. It has provided a safe space where we have learned a lot from each other and other experiences such as the Lunar New Year, Holi and Ramadan.”

Zeeshan ShahPlatinion Principal,
Enterprise Solutions

“For me, AsianDiversity@BCG is small taste of home away from home. Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, when we have all been isolated with our global travel and haven’t seen our friends and family. AsianDiversity@BCG is what has kept me close to my home and our traditions.”
