Equity Movement

We Stand Against Inequity, Racism, and Hate

The current goal of our Equity Movement is very simple:

To better understand the issues of inequity and how they impact our organization and our companies.

BCA does not discriminate on any basis; We celebrate diversity on all levels. At BCA, our strength comes from diverse backgrounds, beliefs and experiences, and we will continue to speak up for the values that are at the very heart of who we are as an organization. The BCA community is all about giving, serving, and asking the question, “how can we help each other succeed?

Listen and Learn

We have made the commitment to Listen and Learn. Join us on our journey to better understand issues of race, equality and inequity, and to ultimately move forward being better allies to all the marginalized communities. The Listen and Learn sessions are hosted monthly (via zoom), and any BCA Member is invited to join the discussion. If interested, please email joleen@bcaphiladelphia.com.
