How does difference
make the difference?

As a firm that values diversity and a spirit of teamwork, we find it valuable to come together to share experiences and perspectives — about our commonalities, about our differences and about using both to enhance our workplace and bring the best of the firm to our clients. Having open and honest conversations was especially critical throughout the past year, when social and political events underscored the importance of such dialogue.

These conversations, along with our reaffirmation of long-held principles of inclusion, are invaluable to our organization. They enable us to benefit, to the greatest extent possible, from wide-ranging viewpoints and ideas.

What is more, as a global business — and a predominantly person-to-person business — promoting diverse perspectives creates a competitive advantage for the firm and our clients. Through programs such as the Black Analyst Initiative and MD Retention Initiative, which supports the success and retention of diverse managing directors, we continue to develop and retain a diverse talent pipeline by increasing the accountability and connectivity between all professionals, empowering managers and facilitating development opportunities.

This approach allows us to draw from the largest possible pool of talent, fosters innovation, drives improved decision-making and enables us to provide our clients with the guidance and localized knowledge they need to succeed in global markets that are, themselves, incredibly diverse. At the same time, it helps us become more relevant to the communities in which we work and live, giving us greater insight into local cultures, helping us provide opportunities for local businesses and, ultimately, helping us contribute to economic development that benefits everyone.

Dialogue on race

Led by our CEO and featuring senior managers and external thought leaders, this Talks at GS series addresses race relations and the value of open and honest dialogue. Subjects range from appreciation of differences, to understanding the experiences of others, to realizing the opportunities of a culture based on inclusion, consensus and teamwork.

SUPPLIER DIVERSITY

At Goldman Sachs, we believe fair competition is critical to healthy economic development in the communities we call home, and consequently value a diverse and inclusive supply chain. A recent example of this philosophy in action is the relocation of our Irving, Texas, office to Dallas. Through a competitive bidding process that included a diverse range of vendors, we selected Staffelbach, a local woman-owned architectural firm, to design our new six-story office space with a layout and features that will allow our people to perform at their maximum potential.

Gender pay equity at Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs has long been committed to equal employment opportunity, including compensating all of our employees equitably at all levels of the firm. Recently, we conducted a compensation analysis (base salary and discretionary bonus) examining gender pay parity for U.S. employees across job types and levels. Based on this analysis, we determined that our employees receive comparable compensation for similar work regardless of gender. Goldman Sachs will continue its commitment to equitable treatment of all employees, including ongoing reviews of compensation determinations.
