Our Founder

We're committed to helping you create a workplace where every employee can thrive.

Devika Brij, CEO and Founder of Brij the Gap Consulting, is a champion for creating empowered workforces by helping underrepresented professionals embrace their position as the driver in their careers.

She has over 12 years of experience in creating professional development frameworks and environments that enables underrepresented individuals to thrive. Prior to launching Brij the Gap Consulting, Devika was a sales and people leader who transformed her career at top global companies like Google, LinkedIn and several tech startups. As a woman of color who drove significant value for the companies she worked for, she often felt like an outsider and overlooked despite her professional achievements. Through these experiences, Devika created frameworks to help underrepresented individuals like her bridge the gap and attain the professional advancement they deserved. Using these frameworks, Devika transformed her entry level role into a people leader position in less than 6 years, increased her salary by 6X and helped her peers achieve similar success.

Today, Devika dedicates her days to helping organizations improve employee performance and productivity, increase retention, foster a more effective workforce and influence brand perception. Through a variety of workshops, programs and consulting services, Devika has helped dozens of organizations like Meta, Visa, Reddit, Morgan Stanley and many more to empower their employees to drive their careers forward while helping organizations to increase retention.

Devika is also the Co-Founder of Zaka, a career advancement platform for first and second generation immigrants and serves on the Board of Mentors for Monday Night Mentorship. She is currently writing her first career development book which will release in early 2024.

"Turning dialogue into action to achieve an enriching career and work environment is critical, but it takes awareness, sensitivity, and collaboration to achieve. We can support you in achieving the results you're looking for."

Drew Rosenthal

Working with Devika was a dream – she is communicative, thoughtful, inquisitive, and thorough. She ensured that she wasn’t just presenting content on a subject matter; she also specifically wove in Glassdoor’s values and career competencies. I cannot recommend her enough!

Andrea Johnson

The online content is some of the strongest I’ve seen in this space and their expertise and energy comes through the prerecorded videos so well, but the live sessions took it another level! I can’t recommend BTG Consulting highly enough.
