Black History Month

Learning From the Past,
Taking Action for a Better Future

Black history is our history. And Bright Horizons celebrates the scholars, the learners, and the dreamers in the Black community who have made our nation and our culture the rich fabric that it is. Yet we know that honoring the Black community cannot be limited to a moment in time, but is only advanced by how we support our colleagues, community, and friends in and out of our organization all year long.
We are steadfastly committed to that mission.

Celebrating Black History Through Art

Ready to get inspired? Watch a video about Alma Thomas, who started her painting career in her 70s and was the first Black woman to have her artwork displayed in the White House. You’ll even learn how to recreate her trademark radiant circle paintings!

Passionate about DEI


At Bright Horizons, everyone’s welcome. Always. We believe everyone deserves a workplace where they are embraced and appreciated for their talents and accomplishments, where they can work with a sense of belonging, and where they can bring their whole selves to work.

We are committed to supporting diversity and equity in our own workplaces by creating career opportunities for Black talent. To that end, Bright Horizons joined the OneTen coalition in 2020 and we’re extremely proud of the progress we have achieved and continue to achieve together.

Come Build the Future with Us

Black History is Our History.
Our History is American History.
Therefore by deduction… Black History is American History.
To separate the two would simply be incomplete…
