Since becoming Goldman Sachs’s youngest female Black partner in history at age 37 in 2018, Anadu has spearheaded much of the big bank’s efforts to invest in underserved areas and particularly communities of color. As head of Goldman’s urban investment group, she oversees a $4 billion portfolio dedicated to investments that address racial inequities, unemployment, a lack of affordable housing, and other problems—with more than $1 billion invested so far this year. Anadu also took a leading role in disbursing the bank’s capital for the Paycheck Protection Program, the federal government’s stimulus initiative for small businesses: So far, Goldman has committed $750 million to PPP loans, with almost half the money deployed going to predominantly minority areas.
