Employee Affinity Networks
Employee affinity networks and interest forums, which are open to all professionals at Goldman Sachs, develop programs that support our firm’s diversity and inclusion strategy.
They offer training and educational programs, create networking forums, host leadership conferences, and sponsor client events. We have developed and support over 80 affinity networks and interest forums globally, including the following:
- Asian Professionals Network
- Disability Interest Forum
- Firmwide Black Network
- Firmwide Hispanic/Latino Network
- Informal Religious Support Groups
- Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Network
- Veterans Network
- Women’s Network
- Working Parent Forum
These groups provide an opportunity for our people to share concerns and feedback, and to develop professional relationships with those from other business units and divisions. Additionally, they help our people to identify opportunities for professional development and advancement to help them achieve their full potential.
