The tumultuous past year has offered the world ample opportunity for reflection and education. It is time for action. Time for individuals and corporations alike to put their money and resources where their hashtags are.
It seems that The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. has heeded this call with the One Million Black Women initiative.
Through this initiative, Goldman Sachs has pledged to commit $10 billion in direct investment capital and $100 million in philanthropic capital over the next decade. The initiative will address the dual disproportionate gender and racial biases that Black women have faced for generations.
We invite you to listen to our fireside chat between guest speaker Asahi Pompey, Global Head of Corporate Engagement and President of the Goldman Sachs Foundation, and moderator Cecily McLeod, Senior Counsel at Gordon & Rees LLC.
These two extraordinary women will discuss how this first-of-its-kind investment plans to impact the lives of at least one million Black women by 2030.
They will also explore how despite the barriers to opportunities, Black women are starting businesses faster than anyone else in the U.S. and breaking the glass ceiling in all industries.
