Goldman Sachs investment bank is going to Hire as many Women as Men. The American investment bank Goldman Sachs has announced a new personnel policy.
From now on, 50 percent of the newly recruited staff must be women, according to an email Tuesday that the top of the bank sent to the team.
Also, the bank wants 11 percent of its staff to be African Americans and 14 percent to Latinos.
These are beginning analysts and bankers, who make up 70 percent of the newly hired staff.
Departments are themselves responsible for achieving more diversity.
When rewarding and promoting managers, thought is given to the extent to which they have committed themselves to this.
A diversity program has been running at Goldman Sachs for a year.
The announcement means an extension thereof.
There work at the bank with relatively many white men.
It is still being examined whether more can be directed towards hiring people from the LGBT community, people with disabilities and veterans.
“It is important that all our people feel valued and that we embrace our differences,”
says the report signed by top executives David Solomon, John Waldron and Stephen Scherr.
