The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women program held a continuing education workshop on Friday, November 18, for sixteen of its alumni, to address business challenges in recruiting, hiring, training and motivating employees. Sessions were led by Dr. Teresia Linge, Associate Professor of Management and Director of Business Administration/International Business Administration Programs, Chandaria School of Business, and covered: Resourcing and retaining talent in business organizations, Talent Development, Performance Management Processes in Business Organizations, and Rewarding and Motivating Talent.
The workshop was very well received by the program alumni. One participant, Susan Mutuku, reported that she is determined to implement the new knowledge she has gained in the workshop, starting with a Christmas party for her employees.
The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women initiative was launched in 2008 as an effort to foster economic growth by providing women entrepreneurs around the world with business education and access to capital. To date, the initiative has reached over 10,000 women from across 56 countries through a network of 100 academic, nonprofit, and bank partners.
