Goldman Sachs to Partner with 10,000 Women in Developing Countries

Africangirls After a coaching session with a female executive at a bank a few days ago, I walked past the Goldman Sachs building in St. Paul’s. Inside I could see the words "10,000 Women" emblazoned across banners. As you can imagine, my curiosity was piqued and so I decided to find out a little more about the programme. Goldman Sachs has launched an initiative to provide business and management training to 10,000 women in developing countries over the next five years. It sounds like a wonderful project, and pairs with other organisations I know well and respect – which is even more exciting. It will be working with the Judge Business School, at my very own University of Cambridge, which will pair with the charity Camfed, a charity which supports female education in Africa as a moral and economic imperative. I was cheered by this news as it is a charity I already support. Last weekend in fact,  my husband and I attended the screening of a powerful movie that Camfed sponsored, Where the Water Meets the Sky, based on their work with young women and aids orphans in Zambia. I personally look forward to hearing more about the outcomes of the programme in the future, and wish them well.
