Diversity and inclusion

Diversity and inclusion are at the heart of our business strategy. Our Baringa Diversity and Inclusion programme aims to:

  • Challenge our strategy, recruitment, policies and processes to support diverse and inclusive practices
  • Be the link across our D&I networks: Gender Diversity, Ethnic Diversity, Interfaith, Embrace (LGBTQ+), Industry to Consulting and Neurodiversity
  • Drive the ‘work-life balance’ agenda to ensure we support our people through all stage of their lives – as parents or caregivers, through changing life circumstances and in breaking down stigmas towards gender, sexual orientation, race, mental health, religion and other stereotypes

Gender Diversity Network Lead

“The Gender Diversity Network is an agent for change, working on gender related topics and initiatives that support everyone (regardless of their gender identity) to be and feel safe in a work environment, have their voices heard and effort fairly recognised and rewarded. I passionately encourage my colleagues to stay true to who they are and still excel in a demanding professional services environment. We have a fantastic team in the Gender Diversity Network where we are empowered to be trusted advisors to the business, challenge others to be more inclusive, and take proactive steps & action-based plans to drive gender parity. We know it's a long arduous journey but we're seeing that sustainable change is absolutely possible - we'd love for you to join us on Baringa's journey!”

Yusuf Ahmet

Expert in Financial Services

"My motivation for instigating this initiative was to ensure that our people of faith feel as though they can bring their full selves to work and are included within the firm. In addition, I feel that this working group will help deepen our client relationships, as empathising and relating to others is fundamental to our business and the hallmark of what it means to be a good consultant."

Industry to Consulting Lead

"At Baringa, part of our USP is ensuring we employ a combination of people from both consulting and industry backgrounds. The Industry to Consulting community held its first meeting in January 2018 and now has over 130 members across the company. Our aim is to ensure that people joining from industry feel included and valued, gain core consulting skills as quickly as possible and are fully able to leverage & share their strengths with the wider organisation."

Ellen Fraser

Ellen Fraser

Partner and energy expert

"Energy companies have always talked of needing to transform - whether to adapt to new regulations, meet evolving customer expectations or to reduce costs – but few have achieved the radical changes that are demanded of them now. The recent step change in competition in the market and the political and regulatory pressure requires customer-centric and data-driven transformations from even the nimble smaller suppliers."

Baringa Diversity and Inclusion networks and our partners

Gender diversity network and Opportunity Now

We are committed to accelerating change for women in the workplace because it benefits our business and society. Opportunity Now works with us to offer tailored and pragmatic advice to maximise women’s potential.

We are dedicated to hiring, promoting and retaining talented people from all ethnic backgrounds. We have partnered with the Race for Opportunity campaign as part of our commitment to improving employment opportunities for ethnic minorities.

Interfaith working group

Faith is particularly important to the lives of millions of people. Understanding and appreciating the importance of faith is vital to ensuring we are truly inclusive.
