Next Generation Women Leaders Asia–Pacific

Be inspired. Make a difference.
June 16-17, 2022

Program Overview

The Next Generation Women Leaders (NGWL) Asia–Pacific program kicks off with a two-day virtual event on June 16-17 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 the interview-preparation program—our case and personal-experience interviews—Q&A sessions, and networking events with the local office. These extended workshops and informative virtual sessions will begin in 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.


Next Generation Women Leaders Asia–Pacific will begin on Thursday, June 16 with welcome words, an opportunity to ask questions, and ample time to get to know one another in an informal setting. Across the next two days, attendees will participate in interactive workshops, hear from inspirational speakers, and work with facilitators to further shape their leadership style. This will help them become trailblazers in their personal and professional lives. During the program, attendees will have an opportunity not only to learn more about McKinsey and leadership skills, but also focus on personal development—in particular, confidence and effective communication skills.
