Our 10 Actions toward racial equity

In 2020, McKinsey put forth a public commitment to anti-racism and social justice. Drawing on our areas of core expertise, we’ve focused on building Black leadership within our organization and beyond, identifying solutions through data-based research and investing in social change within our wider community. While we know that we have a long way to go on our journey, we are proud to support the leaders, businesses and communities working for a more just and equitable society.

Change In Action

Giving back across the globe

Every year we work with more than 600 nonprofit organizations that are addressing some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Each McKinsey office chooses the nonprofits in its community to support, reflecting the issues that colleagues are passionate about and that are making a difference locally.

Supporting food security across the United States

We partnered with Feeding America to support food security in the United States, identifying opportunities to improve the nutritional content of its supply chains and strengthening the capacity of its leaders and frontline staff.

Building the next generation of Black leadership in Brazil

In partnership with large companies across Brazil, McKinsey helped launched the Juntos Conference with the purpose of building the next generation of young Black Brazilian professionals.

Preventing the next pandemic

McKinsey is a founding member of The Trinity Challenge, a global coalition of more than 40 universities, philanthropic foundations, and leading businesses that uses data and analytics to build greater resilience against future global-health emergencies.
