The 10,000 Women initiative was launched in 2008 by the Goldman Sachs Foundation, providing 10,000 women from across 56 countries with business and management education, mentoring and networking. 10,000 Women has supported women through a network of 100 academic and nonprofit partners. “The initiative is founded on research conducted by Goldman Sachs – Womenomics and Women Hold up Half the Sky – the World Bank and others which suggests that such an investment can have a significant impact on GDP growth.” (goldmansachs.com)
10,000 Women graduates report immediate and continuos business growth. Eighteen months after completing the program, nearly 70% of graduates have increased their revenue and nearly 60% have added new jobs. On average, graduates doubled the size of their workforces and revenues increased nearly five times over.
10,000 Women has demonstrated that investing in women creates a virtuous cycle that directly benefits the community as women use their income and skills to support their families and communities. Nine out of ten participants pay it forward by mentoring and teaching business skills to other women.
