Ex-Goldman Partner: Wall Street Silence Failed Low-Income Women

  • Colleen Foster says industry ‘just chose not to get involved’
  • Foster is treasurer of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund

Until last year, Colleen Foster was a partner at Goldman Sachs Group Inc., where she thrived as a commodities executive in a world dominated by men. She’s also spent years on Planned Parenthood’s national board, and is now treasurer of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. On Tuesday, after news broke of a draft Supreme Court opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade, she spoke to Bloomberg News’ Max Abelson about Wall Street and the fight for reproductive rights. This interview has been condensed and edited for clarity.
