“Indigenous@BCG has provided a space for community, learning, and support. The network includes people from different nations around the world. Hearing their stories and perspectives—and often finding points of connection or similarity—has enriched my experience at BCG.”
Briar Thompson Partner Indigenous@BCG Member
“Having grown up surrounded by Indigenous heritage in Dunghutti country in northern New South Wales, I was excited see the First Nations network emerging when I returned to Australia after many years abroad. Being part of this network gives me the opportunity to put my consulting skillset to use to support Indigenous-led action on critical topics in the Australian landscape.”
Mark Beaumont Project Leader FirstNations@BCG Member
“The support and care we all have for each other makes BCG feel like a home. Through Indigenous@BCG, I’ve made connections (and friends!) with other Indigenous people across offices, tenure levels, and backgrounds, and I know I can reach out to any of them whenever I have a question, need advice, or just chat.”
Noah Cominsky AssociateIndigenous@BCG Member
“Since I had the opportunity to do a secondment at the South West Aboriginal Land and Sea Council, I realised that the gap in living standards and opportunities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians is not permanent, and many great initiatives and people are driving to close it. Being part of FirstNations@BCG helps me contribute to BCG’s effort to do just that. I’m passionate about sharing the message, and the events the group runs continue to open my eyes and build enthusiasm among the whole BCG ANZ system that we can make meaningful change in an extremely important area.”

slide 2 of 2 "Pride@BCG was definitely one of the main reasons I chose to join BCG. Getting the positive reinforcement during my recruitment with BCG that I could be my authentic self at my workplace was exactly what I needed to make my choice. My favorite thing about Pride@BCG is the way the network helps us come together and the camaraderie we feel with every other member knowing that all of us have some level of similarities in the issues we've faced in our lives." Rajthilak Rajasekar Consultant, Singapore "Through Pride@BCG, I’ve connected with a tremendous group of peers spanning all regions of the globe and all levels of tenure. The Network has truly become my extended BCG family. I know that my career development at BCG is strongly supported by both the formal mentor program and the mentoring provided by Pride@BCG. Through the Network, I’ve established relationships with a number of senior leaders in the firm, and they have demonstrated a clear interest in ensuring that I am growing as a consulting professional, finding intellectual challenges, and having a positive experience at BCG." Gabrielle Novacek Managing Director and Partner, Chicago, USA Learn more about Gabrielle "One of my personal focuses within the Pride network is to increase awareness and support for intersectional identities within our own community. In early 2020, we launched a Slack channel specifically for women, trans, and gender non-conforming people in Pride@BCG. As a queer non-binary person, having the support of BCG to pursue efforts like this is really incredible and has led to some of my favorite moments and connections in the network."
