Our values

BRAC’s core values are integrity, innovation, inclusiveness, and effectiveness. BRAC USA shares these values, and has additionally defined team values that guide our culture and operations:

  • We are dedicated to empowering people living in poverty to be agents of change in their own lives.
  • We bring integrity to our work by being honest, principled and fair.
  • We cultivate diversity, equity and inclusion in our work environment to foster a culture of belonging and trust.
  • We support and promote one another’s well-being as people, not just employees.


Our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging

BRAC was founded on the fundamental belief that everyone deserves the opportunity to realize their full potential. Our work has always been guided by our vision of a world free from exploitation and discrimination and rooted in a commitment to serving the most marginalized and vulnerable people. At BRAC USA, we are committed to creating and fostering an inclusive culture within our office and beyond its walls. As an organization whose mandate is global, we work to build a more equitable world where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. We strive to actively celebrate diversity, advance our equitable practices, and drive greater inclusion.

I have spent my life watching optimism triumph over despair when the light of self-belief is sparked in people. As a team, I want us to keep lighting these sparks. Our work should always reflect our faith in human spirit and our respect for their inherent power.”
