10,000 women for Brazil

Fundação Dom Cabral (FDC), one of the academic partners for Goldman Sachs’ 10,000 Women initiative, is recruiting women for its first 100-strong cohort of programme scholars in Rio de Janeiro. 10,000 Women is a five-year funding programme by Goldman Sachs to provide 10,000 underserved women around the world with a business and management education. It operates through a network of more than 75 academic and non-profit institutions. These partnerships help develop locally relevant coursework and improve the quality and capacity of business education worldwide. The women selected for the programme enrol in tailormade certificate programmes ranging from five weeks to six months. Topics covered include marketing, accounting, writing business plans and accessing capital. Students are offered mentoring and postgraduate support by partner institutions, local businesses and Goldman Sachs employees. To qualify for the programmne, women must be Brazilian nationals or residents, unable to afford the programme unaided, and managing their own business which must, in the organizers’ view, have great potential for growth.
