Investing in Women

With this week’s U.N. Summit focusing on the Millennium Development Goals, it is important to note the progress that has already been made. Goal 3 of the agreement is to promote gender equality and empower women. A Goldman Sachs initiative is helping the world achieve this goal.

Two years after it was launched, Goldman Sachs continues its 10,000 Women Initiative. This initiative is a five-year investment offered to underserved women around the world to provide them with a business and management education. Operating through a network of academic and non-profit partners, Goldman Sachs’ 10,000 Women has already helped over 1,200 women and is well on its way to meeting the initiative’s goal.
