A diverse & inclusive culture

Diversity and inclusion are at the core of Bates White’s culture—from recruiting individuals with diverse backgrounds, skillsets, and perspectives, to celebrating diversity through a host of different events and programs, and providing mentorship and professional opportunities for every employee to be successful. And, our Diversity-Inclusion Council, made up of a cross-section of employees, is dedicated to providing educational opportunities, cultural celebrations, and other D-I programming.


Across all aspects of our business, we strive to provide a quality work experience—whether it’s developing careers, teaching advanced skills, delivering high-quality work, managing teams, finding ways to give back to the community, or supporting each other.
