85 Broads is an exclusive global women’s network with members who live, work, and study in 82 countries around the world. The women in 85 Broads are business professionals, lawyers, educators, philanthropists, politicians, athletes, scientists, doctors, engineers, artists, and entrepreneurs.
85 Broads was originally founded in 1997 as a social network for women who worked for Goldman Sachs at 85 Broad Street, the investment bank’s NYC headquarters. In 2000, the network was expanded to include a more diverse group of women from a variety of fields and backgrounds, including the non-profit sector.
Where We are Now
