This week, politicians, writers, activists and nonprofit leaders are gathered in Davos, Switzerland for the 43rd annual meeting of the World Economic Forum. While the issues to be addressed range from healthcare to regulation to the environment, the two of us share an interest in one particular topic -- economic growth and job creation. The Huffington Post and Goldman Sachs come at this issue with different perspectives, but a common goal. So today, our two organizations are joining forces to examine what entrepreneurs are doing to drive growth around the world and apply the lessons we have learned. Based on the experience of Goldman Sachs' 10,000 Women initiative and HuffPost's commitment to showcasing "What Is Working," we are appearing together today in Davos to open up the conversation about helping to build a global economy that not only grows but also provides much greater opportunities and prosperity to women and men alike.
