A former managing director at Goldman Sachs has revealed the sexist discrimination she faced in the company. Jamie Fiore Higgins worked at Goldman Sachs for 17 years before she quit in 2016.
As this news went viral, here is what Twitteratis had to say.
And then they’ll tell you that it’s “easier” for women. https://t.co/pc4rYrplKk— Harshit Gupta / हर्षित / ہرشت (@hg6) September 6, 2022
Wow. Basic consideration for another human being…not even compassion or empathy…is that too much to ask? Inhumane creatures. https://t.co/RHQfFDUDlu— Wallflower (@silllychicken) September 6, 2022
Imagine some still believe that corporates favor women… Bosses use marriage, maternity or young kids as an excuse against women in hiring, promotions, hikes, distribution of projects.. As if procreation is only women's burden and not joy and responsibility of both parents— Masala Chai (@masala_chaii) September 6, 2022
When Goldman Sachs was asked for a comment, they said, “Had Ms Higgins raised these allegations with our Human Resources department at the time we would have investigated them thoroughly and addressed them seriously. We have a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination or retaliation against employees reporting misconduct.”
This is just one of the shocking revelations Jamie Higgins has made about Goldman Sachs in her book. Truly shameful.
