Goldman Sachs: Stop Discriminating Against Women!

Two previous female employees at Goldman Sachs claim that the bank has a pattern of discriminating against women in several ways, creating a hostile work environment and making it difficult for women to advance or even keep their jobs.

Cristina Chen-Oster, a former vice-president and Shanna Orlich, a former associate say that Goldman Sachs created a "boy's club" atmosphere, including company trips to strip clubs and hiring female escorts to entertain at a company event. This sexualization of women extended to females working at the bank: Chen-Oster claims that a married co-worker walked her to her boyfriend's home, then pinned her against the wall and kissed her. When she complained, she was treated with hostility and eventually resigned.

The two women also claim that female employees make significantly less than men in the same positions and are less likely to be awarded promotions. Employees taking maternity leave were fired upon returning. 

If these allegations are true, the bank seriously needs to investigate their work environment and practices and make an effort to transform their business into one that treats all employees equally and with respect. Please sign the petition to urge Goldman Sachs to stop discriminating against women!

We, the undersigned, are concerned about the allegations regarding treatment of female employees at Goldman Sachs.
