Sharing ideas that do good

A new way to encourage women on boards

post-image

From June 30, Goldman Sachs Group Inc will only help take a company public if it has at least one diverse board member, as their research shows such companies perform better after listing, 

The policy will apply to U.S. and European companies and will increase over time, with the bank requiring two diverse board members starting in June 2021. 

The focus is on encouraging women candidates.
