BNI’s Core Values Start with Givers Gain®

The altruism and goodwill we feel towards one another, and to the world, start with a genuine love of people –all people, equally. We encourage and embrace diversity in every respect.

Our Statement on Equality and Non-discrimination

BNI requires that BNI Chapters review and select persons for membership in all job classifications based on qualifications without regard to race, color, gender, religion, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, age or disability. BNI will support no BNI Chapter’s action when in violation of this equality and non-discrimination statement.

Member Safety and Wellbeing

The safety and wellbeing of our Members is our top priority.  On March 16th, 2020 out of an abundance of caution, BNI transitioned all of its in-person meetings to BNI online®.  The innovative online platform has exceeded our expectations and has proven to be highly effective in allowing Members to keep their network and business strong. BNI Members can network safely from the convenience and comfort of their home or office. We will continue to offer BNI Online® meetings going forward, and countries may start to return to in-person meetings when local governments and National Directors deem it appropriate at the country or regional level, and when Chapter Members are comfortable doing so at their individual Chapter level. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at TMR@bni.com.
