Inclusion and Diversity
Our commitment to inclusion and diversity is embedded in our firm’s history and daily practice.
At McKinsey, inclusion and diversity are critical to achieving our dual mission—to help our clients make substantial, lasting performance improvements and to build a firm that attracts, develops, excites, and retains exceptional people.
Our inclusive culture enriches our creativity, innovation, and problem-solving abilities. Our teams incorporate diverse perspectives that strengthen our client impact.
Through our policies, systems, and culture, we strive to create an exceptional global environment for all colleagues. Additionally, we have vibrant support networks for women, members of the LGBTQ community, colleagues from minority ethnic groups, parents of special-needs children, and colleagues with disabilities. Leaders of these groups regularly report progress across the organization and help shape our policies and practice. We consistently invest in learning efforts to help all of our colleagues—including all partners, interviewers, and other leaders—to increase their awareness of potential unconscious biases.
In addition to our internal efforts, we invest heavily in research on the business and economic case for diversity and help our clients to address the challenges they face around diversity, through the work of our Organization Practice.
