undefinedNavigant’s Diversity & Inclusion Program is committed to fostering a progressive work environment that creates awareness, supports an open exchange of ideas and encourages a collaborative culture. Our inclusion initiative helps us all more deeply understand and appreciate the needs of our colleagues and clients. Navigant recognizes that its employees bring different interests, goals and perspectives to the Diversity & Inclusion Program. The Firm has created six Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) that provide employees companywide with virtual and office based opportunities to connect to the Program and with each other. In addition, employees can connect with the Diversity & Inclusion Program through general company and office wide activities.

Navigant has a long-standing commitment to celebrating diversity; diversity of thought, solutions and people. We are among Human Rights Campaign’s Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality and have earned a 100 percent rating on HRC’s Corporate Equality Index.

Dedication to Diversity

Navigant’s Diversity & Inclusion program helps employees forge new relationships, share expertise and advice and receive valuable feedback and insights. It allows our professionals to grow their internal and external networks, develop a greater affinity for different experiences and enhance cultural competency—a vital leadership skill in today’s global business environment.

Employee Resource Groups

For those whose interests, participation objectives and networking goals relate to a specific affinity group, Navigant has developed a robust program of ERGs. Employees do not have to identify with an affinity group to participate. The following ERGs support members as they collaborate and network with colleagues: Latino Ancestry, Asian Ancestry, Black/African Ancestry, Women, Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Allies (LGBTA) and Young Professionals.

Navigant works to connect members of each group at local offices and Firmwide with networking activities, client-related events, professional and personal development, and community service projects. Activities relate to one or more core program objectives, including awareness, connection, personal and professional development and network building, all designed to support each employee in achieving his or her aspirations.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Navigant Consulting in October 2015.


    Applied through on-campus recruiting. I was informed of selection for interview process via email and had the interview a few days later. The night before interviews, they held a reception on campus where we got to meet some of the consultants in a casual setting. First round interview was a 30 minute behavioral interview.
