Veterans on Wall Street
Goldman Sachs cofounded Veterans on Wall Street (VOWS), an initiative that helps former and current military personnel discover career opportunities in finance. On November 10, 2015 Goldman Sachs hosted the fifth annual VOWS Symposium and Hiring Fair. We asked the previous year’s attendees to share some of the special traits veterans can bring to the workplace.
Networking and Mentorship
The Goldman Sachs Veterans Network recruits talented troops and fosters their professional development at the firm. The network also advises on military-related engagements – with nonprofits, veteran-owned businesses and the community – to ensure that Goldman Sachs is a military employer-of-choice and a corporate leader in veterans’ affairs.
Goldman Sachs Gives
Goldman Sachs Gives (GSG) funded a network of nonprofits whose mission is to reintegrate wounded and disabled veterans. The initiative focuses on job placement and readiness, and family support and counseling. Partners include: The Mission Continues, offering service-based fellowships to veterans; Vets Prevail, providing mental health counseling and resources; and Team Rubicon, deploying returning veterans to assist in disaster relief.
As part of Community TeamWorks, the people of Goldman Sachs support veterans through team-based volunteer projects around the world. In 2015, 550 volunteers contributed 3,500 hours to help 1,300 veterans and their families.
