Organizational Excellence

McKinley has an unrivaled track record of partnering with associations to support their challenges and opportunities related to people and structures- governance and leadership, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), and organizational assessments.

Let's Get Started

Governance and Leadership

Association governance and leadership is unique, and we understand it backward and forward. From facilitating transformational change with board leadership to designing and implementing new modes of governance, our consultants are well-equipped to support the unique needs of mission-driven organizations.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

For associations to thrive, addressing diversity, equity and inclusion is an organizational imperative. McKinley has developed DEI research, planning and facilitation tools to guide leaders through needed change within their organizations and industries at large.

Organizational Effectiveness

Taking an association to the next level often requires taking a closer look at the people, systems and operating norms an organization has in place. With the unique structures of mission-driven organizations in mind, McKinley’s consultants assess and drive the structural change needed to bring an association’s strategic vision to life.

McKinley provided expertise and guidance to the task force to ensure our DEI effort was a success. Our board unanimously approved the recommendations and requested that implementation begin immediately to transform our Society.

McKinley exceeded our expectations, bringing great depth and knowledge of the industry and strong engagement skills. So not only did they come up with good recommendations because of their approach, they left us in a place where those recommendations could be implemented and sustained.
