“I’ve often been called the mother hen for our southern office’s LGBTQ+ community,” jokes Diana Ellsworth. But this McKinsey partner takes seriously her opportunity to be open and authentic about who she is.
A former teacher, Diana is a global co-lead of our firm’s worldwide network of LGBTQ+ colleagues, known as GLAM, and she leads our Diversity and Inclusion Practice for the Americas. In 2018, she and another firm partner launched a new kind of McKinsey forum that convened over 115 LGBTQ+ senior business leaders from around the world: The Alliance.
“It’s the first global community of its kind,” Diana says. “We’re bringing together prominent leaders across sectors who are dedicated to accelerating positive change in their own organizations and communities.”
