Black Leadership Academy

Building the next generation of Black executive leaders

We have a deep, long-standing commitment to advancing diversity and inclusion in business, in society, and within our firm. We believe, and our research suggests, that inclusion and diversity make a significant difference to an organization’s performance.

Building on our experience developing leadership capabilities in our people and our clients, we created the Black Leadership Academy. The program is available at no cost and is designed to provide Black leaders a catalyst for growth to help them achieve their professional aspirations. This includes equipping them with the mindsets, capabilities, and most importantly, a peer network, to help in their journey.

Designed by our McKinsey Academy experts, the Black Leadership Academy provides organizations the opportunity to improve their talent pipeline and unlock the organization’s full potential while empowering employees to take the next step in their career.
