BE YOURSELF - DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION NETWORKS

Well-represented groups with strong and prominent role models are important throughout BDO.

We embrace individuality along with collaborative working. We believe that ‘difference’ is what makes us great and what strengthens our team, which is why we foster an inclusive culture at BDO which encourages people to be themselves.

OUR NETWORKS CELEBRATED BY:

 

OUR ALLIES NETWORK

“I’ve been working with BDO Inspire (BDO’s equivalent of a women’s network) for a few years. Now I’m a partner, I - together with fellow partner, Ruth Ireland - have continued to ensure the Network has a voice at the table.

The concept of Allies does not apply to gender balance alone. And I was proud when our LGBT+ network, BLEND, spearheaded a new Allies network at BDO this year.

From time to time, we all need the support of others – in and out of the workplace – in order to achieve our potential. Allies – and mentors – in the workplace can help so many people, regardless of gender, race or sexual identity. One of the key parts of being an Ally is to learn about the experiences and issues of those you want to support; those skills are equally useful with friends or family members. I’ll personally keep working to be an Ally of those groups who need one, as part of our ‘Be Yourself’ approach at BDO – but also to simply do the right thing.”
