Hear from our 2020 participants

Fun Fact: I once got the opportunity to fly a plane (although, the sick-bag was needed a few times)
"Initially, I was nervous and didn’t know what to expect from the programme, but within just a few hours I found myself in an inclusive and comfortable environment surrounded by amazing people; each with unique and truly interesting stories to share. My experience on the academy took me from exploring what it means to be my authentic self, to developing my networking skills in a professional environment. I was taken aback by the amount of support and initiatives offered by Goldman Sachs both internally and externally, such as the community teamwork's project or the vast LGBT+ community within the firm."

Fun Fact: I bake a very good Victoria sponge cake!
"The Academy was challenging, eye-opening and inspiring. As well as technical workshops, we explored our own authentic identities and spoke to members of the firm about their experiences being LGBTQ+. This experience has given me the confidence to see myself in environments that I might not have imagined otherwise. The skills I developed are applicable to so many situations, and I’m looking forward to bringing my communication, authenticity and curiosity to everything I do."

Fun Fact: I uploaded a video of my dog on social media for fun and ended up getting 2.2 million views
"I was surprised by how welcoming and diverse Goldman Sachs was! I never expected Goldman Sachs to be this dedicated in empowering individuals from the LGBTQ+ community to thrive and succeed in the workplace. My biggest learning point was that nobody knows you better than you, and that I should play to my strengths and celebrate my abilities!"
