The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.—Networking Initiatives for Multicultural Women

The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc., is not new to promoting diversity. In 2007, the firm's initiative, Securing Talent and Excellence in the Pipeline: The Senior Women's Initiative, won the Catalyst Award for its global programs to eliminate potential barriers to advancement and increase the number of senior women business leaders by supporting women in their career growth through recruitment, advancement, engagement, and retention. In an effort to make certain that all women are represented in the pipeline, the firm embarked on a mission to better understand the workplace experiences of multicultural women inside and outside the firm, resulting in Networking Initiatives for Multicultural Women.
