The Women’s Network is one of the longest-standing diversity networks at A.T. Kearney. The work of this network combined with initiatives supported by the firm have resulted in A.T. Kearney being recognized in Working Mother Magazine’s list of 100 Best Companies. The Women’s Network is committed to recruiting, advancing, and supporting women at A.T. Kearney in multiple areas including the following:
- Increasing our ability to attract and recruit top women candidates at all levels
- Reinforcing our ability to retain and advance leading women candidates
- Strengthening networks in our local offices and our global firm
- Supporting career development, progression, and performance success
- Improving the work-life balance for our people at various stages in their personal lives and careers with specialized programs and initiatives
- Providing forums and platforms for a broad businesswomen’s exchange, focusing on general management and industry-specific topics
- Demonstrating A.T. Kearney’s commitment as a women-friendly place to develop a career
- Creating and presenting research and materials that both highlights gender equality and diversity topics and also calls organizations and communities to action.
The Women’s Network emphasizes networking and mentoring opportunities through formal and informal channels. Local women’s networks facilitate strong relationships and exchange of experiences. Mentoring programs also help connect colleagues with many levels of experience across the extended women’s network and help drive a culture that focuses on retention and success.
A.T. Kearney also actively promotes International Women’s Day, held each year on March 8. Many of our offices around the world sponsor events to mark the day, featuring speakers and opportunities to network, celebrate, and reflect on the great diversity of the women of A.T. Kearney—and the powerful impact we have on our firm’s culture as we deliver on the needs of clients, colleagues, and families.
A.T. Kearney honors the people who fight every day for a more inclusive society by participating in the 2017 New York City Pride March. But for each step forward, we are reminded there is still a long way to go.
