Be inspired. Make a difference.
June 17-18, 2021

Program Overview

The Next Generation Women Leaders Asia-Pacific program kicks off with a two-day virtual event on June 17-18 where attendees will explore the importance of women in leadership, develop a sense of connection and create a long-lasting community. The program will continue with weekly workshops and informative virtual sessions throughout July.

Our NGWL events are intended for individuals who self-identify as women. They are just a few of our many worldwide programs aimed at helping candidates get to know McKinsey better.

If you don’t fit our criteria for these events, please stay tuned to our social media feeds for more opportunities to connect in the future, subscribe to our careers blog for job alerts, and apply for one of our open roles that’s a better fit for your background, skill set, and experience level.
