Member McKinsey & Company
McKinsey has promoted diversity and a higher proportion of women in leadership positions for years, both internally and with studies highlighting the issue.
Our analyses show: Diversity pays off – both economically and also culturally. Neither an individual company nor society at large can afford to ignore the potential the many highly educated women represent.
McKinsey reaches out to female employees with initiatives and mentoring programs specifically designed for women. Leaders are trained in de-biasing, helping them to recognize and overcome preconceptions and stereotypes influencing behaviors and decisions.
“Allowing every talent the best opportunity to unfold their full potential is essential for companies and society. So we consider it CEO priority to promote a climate that makes women successful.”
