McKinsey passionately believes in developing outstanding female leaders. They do so every day, internally and with clients. They have also published numerous acclaimed pieces that demonstrate the importance of women in leadership positions, including Women Matter and the Centered Leadership project. You are invited to take the next step of your leadership journey with them by participating in the APD Women’s Leadership Challenge. In this program, they will help you:
- Shape your own leadership style by playing to your strengths
- Develop your communication style
- Network with other highly talented women
Leadership programming and material will be presented via video conference in our local offices. These large sessions allow us to connect every region while experts present material on leadership topics. After each video conference session, you regional group will meet in person to debrief on the content and practice the new skills you have learned. McKinsey women will lead the debrief sessions to help you practice what you have learned, to help set goals, and to mentor you through the program.
The program is open to APD women (PhDs, JDs, postdocs, medical students, interns, residents, and fellows) currently on campus at Columbia, Harvard, MIT, NYU, Northwestern, and Stanford who will finish programs in 2018 and 2019.

This is a year long program that will run January to December 2016. You are expected to participate in quarterly in-person small group meetings on campus. To apply, please submit your resume by Monday, December 7th.
