Goldman Sachs initiates a huge women initiative
About Goldman Sachs
Including the corporations, financial institutions, governments and individuals, a phenomenal range of financial services with respect to a substantial client base has been handled by the Goldman Sachs Group, Inc which is a leading global investment banking, securities and investment management firm that provides. Maintaining offices across nations, the firm has its headquarters in New York since its inception in 1869.
The 10,000 Women initiative has helped thousands of women around the world build thriving businesses right from the date it was launched in 2008. A great scope of quality education has been provided with networking opportunities and capital that would have been very hard to imagine and access otherwise.
There are various success stories of the program including women like Seema, a recent graduate from India who was able to transform her small cabinetry business behind the success of the program that was growing her employees from 6 to 45 which obviously increases the revenue several times.
At present, there are 10,000 Women who are partnering with Coursera to launch a one-of-a-kind course that will extend the reach of this important initiative to women entrepreneurs around the world.
Our belief in providing access to quality education can transform people’s lives at a course where we have always been passionate in terms of working. With the launch of this course, we’re excited to help the Goldman Sachs Foundation ensure that women entrepreneurs everywhere can reach their full potential through access to a world-class business education.
The new course covers a full range of business topics across 11 core modules. To share their experiences as well as provide support and advice to others has been delivered to a huge extent through Coursera’s innovative and interactive online platform, providing participants with a unique forum. By the end of the course, learners will have created their own Business Growth Plan to help them continue to grow and evolve their businesses. When it comes to growing their businesses and helping each other succeed, they will also be part of a global network of like-minded alumnae passionate.
Benefits of Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women on Coursera is free. In developing markets that employ at least 3 people and earn at least $50,000 (USD) in revenue per year, the program is designed to support women business owners largely. Each and every graduate will receive a 10,000 Women certificate and become part of the alumnae network after they have completed the course successfully. As women raise capital or expand their companies the new found skills, credential, and network provided through the program can be transformative to a great extent.
To create an economic future that is fair and inclusive supporting women entrepreneurs is so crucial, and we’re so honoured to partner with the Goldman Sachs Foundation in this endeavour.
