Do consulting firms (MBB, ATK, Big 4, OW etc.) have turban wearing Sikhs in client facing roles? I thought of my circle and couldn’t think of one in the US.

Look up MasterCard Ceo! If he can make it to that position as a turban wearing Sikh I feel getting a client facing role should not be difficult.

I find this hard to believe and if it’s true, the individual can pursue legal action against this firm in question. I have seen turbaned Sikhs in client facing roles at two big 4 firms, at commercial clients as well as at federal govt clients in Washington DC

No issues at PwC either. One of the less partners in my office is Sikh and is in active client facing roles.

EY has turban wearing Sikhs at partner, senior manager, manager and all other staff levels. I cannot believe a firm will make such a statement, specially during the interview rounds. You should ask your friend for more details.

One of my friends interviewed with similar firms, and the feedback he was given in the final round was that the team and clients was uncomfortable having “turban” wearing Sikhs in “client facing roles”. I am sad hearing this!

Doesn’t that call for discrimination on the basis of race?
