Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity drives creativity and innovation, and unlocking the power of that diversity requires inclusion

A Top Strategic Priority

Our values — meaningful work and meaningful relationships, independent thinking, and creating an environment where the best ideas win — naturally lead us to embrace diversity and treasure our differences. Given our mission to have the deepest possible understanding of global economies, we seek to find, retain, and grow the best talent across gender identity, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, gained experiences, and more. Unlocking the power of that diversity requires an inclusive environment. We believe that when people are truly included on the mission, they think more deeply about the best answers, and push harder on the toughest problems.

In pursuit of this vision, Bridgewater has a dedicated diversity and inclusion team reporting directly to CEO David McCormick, several affinity groups to empower our diverse communities, and a senior council charged with continuing to make Bridgewater a vibrant, inclusive community.

Our employee affinity groups are open to all members of the Bridgewater community, regardless of how they identify.
