Creating change in our communities
We’re committed to fair and equal hiring practices, grassroots initiatives geared at widening the skills pool, and other community programmes that seek to find and nurture talented individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity. We’re also proud to have women in all stages of their careers meaningfully contributing to our combined success.
We’re proud to be a part of multiple community and school programmes and initiatives. This includes the likes of Kerus Global, GirlCode, Afrika Tikkun, Kidz Hub and more, and participate in the Ikusasa Lethu Programme with St Mary’s Waverly.
BBD is also a partner to Dynamic DNA and Umuzi, both learning programmes which are recognised for entry into our Bursary & Beyond Programme. Additionally, BBD is a founding partner of WeThinkCode_ (WTC), a tuition-free programme educating the next generation of software engineers. First- and second-year WTC students complete internships at BBD, with some of the top third-year students then joining our Grad Programme – deep diving into real-world project deliveries and rapidly upskilling across numerous technologies and skillsets.
