McKinsey & Company Next Generation Women Leaders Program 2020/2021 for young Professionals (Fully Funded to Paris, France)

Application Deadline: March 1, 2020


McKinsey invites female students (graduating no later than in 2021) and professionals with fewer than 8 years of experience based in Europe, the Middle East and Africa to join us for our Next Generation Women Leaders event.

The Next Generation Women Leaders event 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 EMEA will be covered by McKinsey. Accommodations will be provided at the event venue – a chateau outside of Paris. Participants are expected to be available for the full program: May 8-10, 2020.
