The Company in Brief
McKinsey & Company is a management consulting firm that helps leading corporations and organizations make distinctive, lasting and substantial improvements in their performance.
With consultants deployed from over 124 offices in more than 63 countries, McKinsey advises companies on strategic, operational, organizational and technological issues as well as on topics related to marketing & sales or corporate finance.
Over the past eight decades, the Firm’s primary objective has remained constant: to serve as an organization’s most trusted external advisor on critical issues facing senior Management, and build a great Firm that will attract, develop, excite and retain exceptional people.
From their first day at McKinsey, consultants work on a project team with other consultants, in close collaboration with clients. They take part in all steps of the project, from the problem definition phase to the final presentation of our recommendations. Thanks to wide diversity of projects, consultants get a chance to work on many different topics, resulting in a steep learning curve and continuous professional development. McKinsey consultants participate to many trainings at all stages in their careers.
A global women’s network
McKinsey Women is our global firm-wide network of female consultants—a powerful resource that provides formal and informal mentoring, training, and relationship-building opportunities. Each office fosters local connections and delivers local programs to help women connect, learn, and grow.
Learning and Development
We offer women-focused programs to help you maximize your strengths, develop your network, and grow as a leader.
Women-specific training programs are offered at every level. For example, female business analysts and associates can attend the Engaging with Presence workshop, and other female-only training programs include Women’s Leadership Workshop, Pathway to Partner, and Pathway to Director. By the time a woman reaches partnership, she will have spent close to three full weeks in women-specific programs in addition to our other formal training programs.
Advocacy and Research
At McKinsey, we have a deep and longstanding commitment to advancing parity for women in work and in society. To date, we’ve invested more than $20 million in original research on the importance of women in leadership positions and in the economy.
Through over 10 years of this groundbreaking research, we have set out a compelling business and economic case. Using our global reach, we share our insights, convene partnerships for action and serve clients, to inform critical decision-makers with the power to make real change.
Although inclusion and diversity have always been core to our mission and values, our research inspired us to accelerate our efforts to advance gender parity within our firm.
