Meet Our People

One of the most special things about working at McKinsey is that we’re a nonhierarchical organization. The most junior people on a team are encouraged to voice their opinions, ask questions, and suggest solutions and everyone is expected to actively contribute to the overall success of the project.

Networks and Communities

Diversity matters

Diversity and inclusion aren’t departments, efforts, or projects. They’re how we live, what we respect, and a fundamental aspect of our success.

Our networks support our people, providing a welcoming environment where mentorship and community create an unparalleled sense of belonging and growth.


In 1995, a group of colleagues created GLAM, our LGBTQ+ network, which formally demonstrates our commitment to LGBTQ+ equality and inclusion. GLAM has grown to include people globally, including straight colleagues–GLAM Allies–and it is a source of support and mentorship as well as a resource on benefits and workplace issues. GLAM also works with community and human-rights organizations.

Black Network

Since 1991, McKinsey’s global Black Network has brought people together and created opportunities for colleagues, clients, and alumni. Whether through social events, professional-development conferences or mentoring, this network is incredibly active and supports our Black consultants of all tenures.

Hispanic and Latino Network

McKinsey’s Hispanic and Latino Network includes Americans of Hispanic background and people from Latin America and Spain who live and work in the United States. With its great diversity of members, this network offers the community, mentoring and support we all expect from McKinsey.


Veterans@McKinsey supports people from all branches of military service around the world. Our goal is to create a vibrant community of leaders with a shared experience of military service, who understand the transition from the military-to- the private-sector and who support one another personally and professionally.

Asians at McKinsey

We promote the development and advancement of colleagues of Asian backgrounds at the firm. Our group welcomes colleagues across all roles and tenures who identify as Asian by geography or heritage, or who wish to support and celebrate Asian cultures.

Access McKinsey

Access McKinsey was created by and for colleagues with disabilities, including those that are visible such as mobility impairments as well as non-visible such as learning disabilities or chronic health conditions. The network provides a welcoming environment where members support each other’s development and advancement, and share best practices on disability inclusion.

Important fraud alert

McKinsey has become aware of scams involving false offers of McKinsey employment. The scams and false offers use imposter websites, email addresses, and text messages. None of these offers are legitimate, and McKinsey’s recruiting process never involves interviewing via instant message, nor requires candidates to purchase products or services, or process payments on our behalf.
