NGWL Paris

NGWL event in Paris

Event overview

The Next Generation Women Leaders event is three-day workshop that explores the importance of women in leadership.

Event attendees will work with facilitators to further shape their leadership style, helping them become trailblazers in their personal and professional lives. They will walk away with an understanding of the McKinsey problem solving approach, which they can use in school, work and life.

As attendees explore the world of consulting, they will create genuine connections with peers as well as McKinsey colleagues and alumni.

The event in 2020 was moved to a virtual setting.

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.
