BGC Equitable Employer Statement

BGC values building and sustaining a culturally diverse environment and commits to intentional efforts to reflect that (along with our other values) in all that we do. BGC is committed to provide employees with an equitable opportunity hiring process and work environment free from discrimination and harassment. We seek to hire, train, and engage people from diverse backgrounds, particularly those who experience systemic barriers. Employment decisions are based on the individual’s qualifications, merit, lived experience, and knowledge. 

Equity means treating folks based on their needs. It differs from equality, where everyone is treated the same, regardless of need. Equal circumstances do not yet exist in our society, so BGC practices ethics of equity in all aspects of our organization. Systemic oppression in society has marginalized folks based on identity and culture, and we commit to countering these dynamics.
