We commit to:

- Welcoming and respecting diversity in all forms
- Recognising ethical, safety and environmental responsibility in delivering education
BFD Education Membership
We understand the difficulties in sourcing quality and relevant business and MBS education and therefore have created an education hub for our BFD Education Members. This hub will enable members to access not only BFD Education materials but also resources from our trusted BFD Partners.
