Goldman Sachs Brings Sexist Back at Women’s Coding Event

GS codingLast week, Harvard University (please say that with your nose in the air) held a conference for some pretty smart women of the world — Women Engineer Code. At said WECode event, Goldman Sachs stepped in for the key sponsorship.

Its savvy idea for swag would be a compact mirror and nail files. Keep it classy, GS.

According to the story in the New York TimesGoldman Sachs also provided these blossoming 13-year-old girls (I guess by the nature of the gift), T-shirts and key chains to hold earbuds. The event’s organizers “encouraged Goldman Sachs to bring goodies that would appeal to a female audience.”

And that was the selection. What misogynistic dinosaur made that decision?

“We are strong supporters of efforts to recruit and retain women in technology. We apologize if the gifts gave anyone offense,” a Goldman Sachs spokeswoman said in a statement to the Times.

Keep telling yourselves that, GS.
