McKinsey & Company is seeking applications for the Next Generation Women Leaders (NGWL) EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) Program to continue with weekly workshops and informative virtual sessions throughout May and June.

The Next Generation Women Leaders EMEA program kicks off with a three-day virtual event on May 5 – 7 where attendees will explore the importance of women in leadership, develop a sense of connection, and create a long-lasting community.

Next Generation Women Leaders EMEA will begin the evening of Thursday, May 5 with welcome words, an opportunity to ask questions, and ample time to get to know one another in an informal setting. Across the next two days, May 6 – 7, attendees will participate in interactive workshops, hear from inspirational speakers and work with facilitators to further shape their leadership style, helping them become trailblazers in their personal and professional lives.
