International Women’s Day 2022 - Break the Bias
Brahmin supports a diverse and equitable workplace that uplifts and celebrates female leaders. Women make up 82% of the workforce at Brahmin and are represented in ⅔ of C-suite roles, 50% of director roles and 74% of management roles.
On International Women’s Day, Brahmin stands with the Break the Bias campaign, focusing on forging a gender equal world, free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. We want to create a world that is diverse, equitable and inclusive; where difference is valued and celebrated.
In all departments at Brahmin, there are women who Break the Bias and inspire us to continue to push the limits of what we can do both in and out of work.
We asked our employees to submit nominations of women they would like to feature during the month. In alignment with the Break the Bias campaign, we provided them with the following criteria.
- Influences behavior

- Has launched initiatives at Brahmin (both big and small)
- Is passionate about philanthropic efforts
- Has achievements we can celebrate
- Helps motivate and encourage others
- Mentors youth
