ⓘ 10.000 Women

10.000 Women is a program organized by Goldman Sachs and the Goldman Sachs Foundation with the goal of helping to grow local economies by providing business education, mentoring and networking, and access to capital to underserved women entrepreneurs globally. The program was announced on March 5, 2008 at Columbia University. The initiative is one of the largest philanthropic projects the bank has been involved with. The effort was in its initial years run by Dina Habib Powell, a managing director at Goldman Sachs.

                                     

1. Award process

As part of the program, Goldman Sachs has committed $100 million in funding and partnered universities in Europe and the United States with business schools in developing and emerging economies.

Vital Voices has presented the 10.000 Women Entrepreneurial Achievement Award at its annual Global Leadership Awards event from 2009-2011.

Past recipients include Temituokpe Esisi of Nigeria 2009, Andeisha Farid of Afghanistan 2010 and Fatema Akbari of Afghanistan 2011.

In September 2013, Goldman Sachs launched a public Twitter presence for the 10.000 Women program using the screen name GS10KWomen. In December 2015 the account had over 39.000 followers.
