BCT Core Values-BCT Partners.png

As a minority-owned business, we understand the importance of inviting diverse people and views to the table. In addition to our six core values, our corporate culture is guided by the South African principle of Ubuntu, translated as "I am because we are" or "humanity towards others." This ethos forms the foundation of how we work as a company, behave as individuals, and the spirit we seek to convey to our clients and partners. Working as a team and united by our principles, we know we can create lasting change

Meet the Women of BCT!

At BCT Partners, we believe that accelerating equity starts with us. We can't help our clients to increase opportunities for their employees if we are not leading the way. 


This employee resource group was created as a supportive and collaborative space for women employees to discuss and raise awareness of personal and professional matters and foster experiences encouraging BCT women to thrive.

The goals of the Women of BCT include:

  • Connecting women within the BCT community with professional development opportunities and resources to promote professional growth.

  • Communicating and exchanging ideas on topics of interest to women employees.

  • Working with the leadership team to foster changes that benefit BCT women's personal and professional health.

  • Celebrating women within the BCT community through networking, awareness building, and collaboration.
