Diversity and Inclusion

Woven into Everything We Do

“Excellent client service—our highest calling—takes the best people from all walks of life to solve our clients’ toughest problems. Thus, the principles and practices of diversity and inclusion are woven into every aspect of how we operate.” – Ralph W. Shrader, Booz Allen Chairman of the Board

At Booz Allen, we believe diversity of thought contributes to more innovative ideas, which in turn drives better results not only for our clients, but also for the world around us.

Our Core Values

Putting this belief into action, we’ve made diversity one of our core values and embed diversity and inclusion practices throughout our employee life-cycle and people programs. We set explicit diversity and inclusion objectives in our annual business planning process.

Award Winning

Year after year, representation of women and minorities at Booz Allen has increased. Our Diversity and Inclusion programs consistently earn accolades of distinction, such as recurring spots on the 100 Best Companies lists of Working Mother and Fortune.

Booz Allen is also recognized as the best among Military Friendly companies, Top 50 Women Engineers, and the HRC Corporate Equality Index, among others.

These awards validate our diversity and inclusion practices and fuel our long-term commitment to sustaining an ongoing climate of diversity—leaders and staff sharing ideas, giving program feedback, and referring diverse talent for hiring and advancement.
