We have a deep and longstanding commitment to advancing diversity and inclusion in business, in society and within our firm.

At McKinsey, diversity and inclusion are not just moral imperatives, they are integral to 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.

Through our groundbreaking research, we have set out a compelling business and economic case for diversity. 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.

McKinsey & Company comments on racial bias and social injustice

It is an extremely painful time for communities across the United States and beyond. It has been difficult to witness yet another example of brutal racial injustice. While we all feel the heartache, the pain and frustration are especially deep for our black colleagues. We want to send a simple, clear and unequivocal message: we stand with our black colleagues, their families, friends and communities. The killing of George Floyd, and the many appalling events that have come before, cannot be ignored. There is no place for racism, prejudice or hatred. Period. This belief is shared across our entire firm.

We are amplifying our commitment to do our part to ensure that black lives are spoken for and valued, both inside our firm and beyond. We will use our skills productively to help our local communities break down unacceptable barriers to equality and opportunity.

Our global managing Partner, Kevin Sneader, shared this message with colleagues on Sunday, May 31
