Next Generation Women Leaders

Next Generation Women Leaders

Be inspired. Make a difference.

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2018 Next Generation Women Leaders event. Stay tuned to our Next Generation Women Leaders and McKinsey Women Facebook pages, as well as our Careers blog, for more information regarding upcoming events and initiatives.

This event is just one of our many worldwide programs aimed at helping candidates get to know McKinsey better. We hope to get the chance to meet you at another one of our forums.

The first Next Generation Women Leaders (NGWL) event took place in Paris in 2012. Over the years we have run additional initiatives to further support women leadership under the NGWL umbrella: the events in Paris in 2014 and 2016, the NGWL Award in 2016 and 2017 and most recently, the events in Washington, DC in June 2017 and Paris in May 2018.

The NGWL event is an exclusive three-day workshop where attendees explore the importance of women in leadership and the impact they are having on the economy. The NGWL Award is financial scholarship combined with individual mentorship from McKinsey consultants.

For both the event and the award, we look for students, young professionals and entrepreneurs who enjoy problem solving and creative thinking and are constantly seeking ways to maximize their potential.

We are looking to get to know women who:

  • are students, graduates or working professionals with fewer than 6 years of experience
  • hold an outstanding record of academic and/or professional achievement
  • have a proven record of leadership in an academic and/or professional setting
  • thrive when working with other people
  • want to use their talents to make positive changes in their lives and the world we share
