How we do it: Connectivity and development
Mentorship and conversation with openly LGBT leaders has a huge impact. McKinsey sponsors regular professional-development conferences for our GLAM network—all GLAM consultants worldwide are invited. We get close to 100 percent attendance.
How we do it: Encourage an inclusive and welcoming environment
McKinsey’ s policies and environment have made it a leader in LGBT equality. We believe the same values that drive the excellence of our client work—respect for talent and the importance of individual development and personal satisfaction—lead to our inclusive culture and our leadership in all areas of diversity.
To expand our efforts, we created GLAM Allies groups for straight colleagues who want to get involved and extend GLAM’s influence.
How we do it: Recruiting
McKinsey is a founding sponsor of groups such as Reaching Out MBA in the United States and Brazil, Out for Undergraduates in Business, IvyQ, and Open for Business, a business-led coalition focused on the business and economic case for global LGBT rights.
You will find our LGBT consultants at many schools meeting with students and providing insight into the working and welcoming environment at McKinsey.
