NEW YORK, April 20, 2020 – The Goldman Sachs Foundation today announced that it is making its world-class 10,000 Women online business education course available to more women around the world, free of charge.

Goldman Sachs recognizes that in the current climate, leading a small business is more challenging than ever.
