Our mission is two-fold: to help our clients make distinctive, lasting, and substantial improvements in their performance and to build a great firm that attracts, develops, excites, and retains exceptional people.

Diversity & Inclusion

We have long sought to advance and promote diversity in our own firm, in our clients, and in society more broadly, as well as to foster an inclusive culture, where every colleague—regardless of background—feels a deep sense of respect and belonging. In 2014, we launched All In, a global program to increase the number of women at all levels of our firm. Through our policies, systems, and culture, we strive to create an exceptional global environment for all colleagues. Our affinity networks foster community, mentorship, professional development, and advancement for women, members of the LGBTQ+ community, colleagues from minority ethnic groups, parents of special-needs children, veterans, and colleagues with disabilities.

Women in Business and Society

For more than 10 years, we have been studying the relationship between gender diversity and organizational performance and developing insights about practices and tools to advance parity. At McKinsey, we have accelerated our efforts to recruit, retain, and develop women.

McKinsey LGBTQ+ Community 

When Ali joined McKinsey there were only six openly LGBTQ+ colleagues in Asia Pacific. He helped to establish the Asia chapter of global GLAM (our LGBTQ+ and allies network), which he leads and has helped grow to 25 offices in 16 countries across Asia. He has driven a comprehensive improvement in policies and benefits in all Asian offices, including gender reassignment, adoption and surrogacy. This year, Ali will convene the first GLAM Asia summit to discuss inclusion and march in Taipei Pride. Additionally, Ali has launched McKinsey’s LGBTQ+ Masterclasses in Asia, and has personally taught 60+ leaders in Singapore, Hong Kong and Sydney. Read more about our LGBTQ+ community 


Work-life flexibility  

We encourage a culture of flexibility and offer specific programs that support career success. Take Time gives consultants the option to take an extra 5 to 10 weeks off between projects. Pace enables consultants to stay in their current role longer, thus reducing the pressure to fulfill requirements for their next role. And our commitment to parents includes extensive leave benefits for mothers, fathers, and adoptive parents; coaching and support provided by a dedicated mothers’ network manager; and a “phase back” option that helps consultants transition back to work after maternity leave.


What does entrepreneurship look like inside McKinsey? It’s finding new ways to solve business problems for our projects, our teams, and our clients. A great idea could change the way we work–or spark a brand-new initiative. We have practice entrepreneurs, geographic entrepreneurs, and new-business leaders. Their great ideas influence McKinsey and our clients, and they spark new initiatives for our alumni.

Connections for life

The people you meet at McKinsey will be your coworkers, colleagues, mentors, peers–and because of the collaborative, supportive nature of the culture, people here make friends for life. From your first team to our 30,000-member alumni network, the connections you make and the experiences you share will last the rest of your career, wherever it takes you.

"Working alone would have made life monotonous. We mixed things up regularly to keep our morale high. We created superhero alter-egos for each other and formed Spotify-like squads we called “realms.rdquo; We hit the badminton court and played in an indoor cricket tournament. We celebrated every birthday and project milestone. "

"One of the most special things about working at McKinsey is that we’re a non-hierarchical organization. The most junior people on a team are encouraged to voice their opinions, ask questions, and suggest solutions and everyone is expected to actively contribute to the overall success of the project. I experienced this in my first few years"
