NGWL event in Washington, D.C.

Event overview

The Next Generation Women Leaders event in Washington, D.C. is an exclusive 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 can be used to address challenges they may encounter in life.

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

Participants’ travel costs from within North America will be covered by McKinsey. Accommodations will be provided at the event venue. Participants are expected to be available for the full program: May 3-5, 2019.

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.
