Why Join Next Generation Women Leaders EMEA

Inspiring three-day virtual event

The program starts with a virtual event on April 20-22, 2023, where attendees will explore the importance of women in leadership, develop a sense of connection, and create a long-lasting community.

Interview preparation program

All NGWL EMEA attendees who would like to learn more about McKinsey’s recruiting process will be invited to an interview-preparation program. Participants will learn about our case and personal-experience interviews, join Q&A sessions, and practice cases in small groups.

Local networking events

Attendees will be invited to small, local meetups to meet McKinsey consultants and recruiters, and network with other NGWL attendees.

Learning sessions

You will have a chance to participate in training sessions with McKinsey consultants, addressing important topics around communication and impact.

Our NGWL events are intended for women and are fully transgender and nonbinary inclusive. They are just a few of our many worldwide programs aimed at helping candidates get to know McKinsey better.

Agenda

Next Generation Women Leaders EMEA will begin the evening of Thursday, April 20 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, April 21-22, attendees will participate in interactive workshops, hear from inspirational speakers and work with facilitators to further shape their leadership style, helping them become trailblazers in their personal and professional lives.

During the program, attendees will have an opportunity to not only learn more about McKinsey and leadership skills, but also focus on personal development aspects like confidence and effective communication. There will also be ample opportunities to join fun activities throughout the event. After the main event, the program will continue with weekly learning workshops and informative virtual sessions throughout May and June.
