BCG for You
Mentor Program

Where Your Differences Can
​​​​​​​Make a Difference.

October 2021 - June 2022
BCG for You Mentor Program
BCG for You is our new Mentor Program for students from underrepresented ethnic or cultural backgrounds in higher education. This program gives you the unique opportunity to get to know your strengths, maximize your potential, and to connect with fellow students. If you’re currently attending a Dutch University and are doing/ will start your (pre) Masters or final year of your Bachelors, passionate about personal growth, and looking to connect with like-minded people - we want to hear from you!
From October 2021 to June 2022, top talent will engage in this 9-month program. This program is a powerful source of support for students from underrepresented ethnic or cultural backgrounds and is all about personal and professional growth. Each participant will be assigned a BCG buddy and mentor.

​​​​​​​The goal is two-fold: BCG hopes to help you in your personal and professional development. On the other hand, we are also very curious to learn from you. 

The BCG for You Mentor Program offers you multiple inspirational workshops provided by people from BCG, including social activities. Through interactive sessions with professional actors and trainers you will get the best out of yourself: you will get to know your strengths, understand others and yourself, work together, grow and reflect. Furthermore, you will have personalized coaching from your mentor and buddy.
Hi there! I'm Julia and I joined BCG almost two years ago when I decided to switch from research to consulting. I studied biology in Wageningen then moved to the US to do my PhD research on corals and fluid dynamics. After a postdoc in Germany, I decided to switch to consulting and moved to Amsterdam. Although I experienced life as an international student and expat during my time in the US and in Germany, I'm curious to learn more about the experience of students with different cultural backgrounds in the Netherlands; what do you like? What don't you like? I look forward to helping to enhance your Dutch experience!

Why is BCG a succesful consultancy firm? Because we are serious about workplace diversity. And that means more than simply having a team that is diverse. Our employees respresent a broad spectrum of races, genders, sexualities, abilities and religions, bringing together an exciting blend of life experiences, viewpoints and personalities. But to enable that diversity to thrive, it takes commitment from us as leaders. Our job is to foster a deep sense of belonging and a unique company culture, so that everyone here at BCG feels they are part of something bigger. We are in the business of delivering superior results. And that starts with inclusive leadership that knows when to listen and when to lead.
