Agency

We are dedicated to supporting people living in poverty to be agents of change in their own lives.

Integrity

We bring integrity to our work by being honest, reliable, principled, and fair.

Equity

We cultivate diversity, equity, and inclusion in our work environment, going beyond basic compliance in order to foster a culture in which the right people are doing the right work with a sense of belonging. We commit to exemplifying these values in the ways we work with our external partners and the impact communities we serve.

Empathy

We support and promote one another’s well-being as people, not just as employees. We look for opportunities for personal and professional fulfillment, safety, and growth for ourselves and others within and outside of BRAC.
