McKinsey Women

Supporting each other, achieving together

Community and mentorship

A global women’s network

McKinsey Women is our global firm-wide network of female consultants—a powerful resource that provides formal and informal mentoring, training, and relationship-building opportunities. Each office fosters local connections and delivers local programs to help women connect, learn, and grow.

Advocacy and research

At McKinsey, we have a deep and longstanding commitment to advancing parity for women in work and in society. To date, we've invested more than $20 million in original research on the importance of women in leadership positions and in the economy.

Through over 10 years of this groundbreaking research, we have set out a compelling business and economic case. 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.

Although inclusion and diversity have always been core to our mission and values, our research inspired us to accelerate our efforts to advance gender parity within our firm.

Events and Networks

Joining McKinsey means joining a legacy of female leadership.

Building Connections

Individual offices offer women-focused sessions addressing topics such as building relationships with senior clients, developing networks, and being a mom at McKinsey. These forums can be annual off-site meetings, a workshop series, or Friday events in the office.

Building Communities

There are also informal support networks for women. For example, McKinsey Moms is a close-knit network that supports mothers before, during, and after pregnancy. McKinsey Moms is full of women to tap into for their knowledge on how to continue a successful career after becoming a parent and the group publishes a moms' guide called Laptops and Lullabies.
