Recent Initiatives Supporting Diversity, Equity and Inclusion:

 

The Bridge Women’s Network is an affinity group designated to foster a strong community of professionals that promote the recruiting, development, and retention of talented female leadership. The BWN Executive Mentorship Program prepares senior-level women for Board Membership and C-Suite positions.

 

Bridge officially celebrates Pride Month in June and in 2020, the Bridge Ally program was formed to support our LGBTQ+ employees and community. Our allies are committed to teamwork, empowerment, responsibility and holding themselves and others accountable to these values as we strive to create a more inclusive and equitable workplace.

 

From 2021 onward, Bridge has committed to recognize June 19th as a paid company holiday in celebration of the end of slavery in the Confederacy, the many achievements of the Black community, and the richness of African American heritage.

 

We appreciate the dedication and sacrifice of our Bridge veterans, service members, and the families who support them. They are a vital part of our continued success and we are proud to employ and develop our veteran team members.

 

From our front-line site employees to our corporate teams, we strongly believe our people are our greatest assets. Each month, Bridge is proud to honor and recognize those who have gone above and beyond in living our Core Values, proving what it means to Be the Bridge.
