85 Broads is a global women's network whose mission is to generate exceptional professional and social value for its members. Through our regional network events and online at, members invest their time, their intellect, and their financial capital in each other's ideas and businesses.

85 Broads was founded in 1997 as a network for current and former Goldman Sachs women who worked at 85 Broad Street, the firm's NYC headquarters, and at other GS offices worldwide. In 2000, at the urging of women at Harvard Business School, we expanded the network to include women who were students and alumnae of the world's leading graduate business schools, irrespective of chosen career path.

In 2004, we recognized the importance of further expanding the network to include women at the undergraduate level who were pursuing every career path imaginable. Over the next 3 years, we created campus clubs at 40 colleges in the US and abroad. And in 2007, we extended membership in 85 Broads to all amazing, trailblazing women worldwide without regard to one's college or graduate school affiliation.

The women in 85 Broads are entrepreneurs, investment bankers, consultants, filmmakers, lawyers, educators, athletes, venture capitalists, portfolio managers, political leaders, philanthropists, doctors, engineers, artists, and scientists, in addition to women who are seeking to blaze new trails.
