Coming Together While Staying Apart

While women are greatly underrepresented in this booming field, BBH seeks to empower them. To increase visibility, grow talent, and create a space for support and career development, we have launched a collaborative circle that champions the contributions of our female technologists. Meet the BBH Women in Technology (WIT) Community. They will share their success stories, explain how our grassroots program began, and encourage women at other companies to start something similar.
