About The Bridgespan Group

The Bridgespan Group is the leading nonprofit consulting organization serving ambitious nonprofit leaders, philanthropists, and impact investors in North America, Asia, and Africa. We value diversity, passion, respect, candor, and most of all having social impact and working towards societies characterized by equity and justice. Our mission to break cycles of poverty is impossible if we do not also achieve equity, given the intersection of the issues of race, gender, caste, etc., with poverty and justice. We have made a public commitment to anti-racism (statement is here) and more importantly are doing the essential work to build a team and leadership at all levels that is diverse, develop a truly inclusive culture, and integrate a focus on equity in all our client work.

If you want to work with the market leader that bridges the worlds of game-changing philanthropists, social change leaders, and impact investors, then Bridgespan is the place for you.
