Who We Are
85 Broads is a global network of 30,000 trailblazing women who are inspired, empowered, and connected worldwide.
The “founding members” of 85 Broads were women who worked for Goldman Sachs at 85 Broad Street, the investment banking firm’s former NYC headquarters. Over the past decade, 85 Broads expanded its membership to include women who are alumnae and students of the world’s leading colleges, universities, and graduate schools worldwide. Our members are located in more than 130 countries around the world and work for thousands of for-profit companies and not-for-profit organizations.
Our Regional Chapters develop and strengthen our global presence through formal and informal networking events often headlined by top experts in their field. Currently, we have 37 professional Regional Chapters worldwide. New Chapters are created at our members’ request. Our Regional Chapters are organized and run by members of the network who passionately believe in the value of investing in smart women, from student to senior executive, globally.
85 Broads has student members at hundreds of undergraduate and graduate schools worldwide. Our campus clubs host conferences on global topics of interest such as wealth management seminars, industry panels, and career and networking workshops. Our campus clubs provide a forum for our undergraduate and graduate school members to develop and hone their leadership skills which dramatically increases their lifetime investment return on their education.
