Goldman Sachs, and partners from the public and private sectors, has committed over $1.3 billion in Utah since 2009. These investments have resulted in over 7,800 affordable housing units, 600,000 square feet of retail, industrial, commercial, and community facility space, 2,100 more students receiving early education, and small businesses receiving financing that helps to create jobs in Utah.

She examines the value of having diversity of thought, her advice to other organizations considering implementing similar programs, shares stories of employees who benefited from the company’s programs, and more.
