EVENT DESCRIPTION

In acknowledgement of International Women’s Day occurring in March, we will be hosting Women in Consulting, a panel discussion, featuring representatives from our partnering management consulting firms.

The GMCA stands in support of efforts to advance gender equality across all industries. Join us for an engaging discussion on how women have successfully navigated through their consulting careers. Topics discussed will range from transitioning into consulting, to professional challenges encountered by women in the workplace.

If you would like to learn about the experiences of women in consulting and or have questions about a career in consulting, then Women in Consulting is the event for you!

This event will consist of (1) a short presentation, where students will be provided with an overview of the unique challenges faced by women in consulting, and (2) a panel discussion with consultants from renowned firms. Through this event, we aim to provide a platform for our members to learn more about management consulting through the lens of women.
