Goldman Sachs isn’t just a global leader in financial services; it also supports Utah women. Take a look at how the company supports women and how it sets an example for other companies.

Goldman Sachs Champions Women

One notable way Goldman Sachs champions women is through its industry-leading Returnship Program. For several reasons, many women experience a gap in their resumes, making it difficult to re-enter the workforce. That’s why the company created a returnship program for women looking to restart their careers. The program offers a six-month paid fellowship with direct-to-hire opportunities for participants who do well. This program helps bolster women’s career strategies as they follow a guided path with a clear result.

Additionally, Goldman Sachs sponsors Possibilities Summits, which provide women, ethnically diverse, and social mobility candidates with opportunities to develop networking skills, meet team members and learn about different roles within the company. It also has a Career Pivot Series and a Women’s Career Strategies Initiative. These programs support women in business at various levels to bring out peak performance and prepare them for future career advancement.
