Whither social-impact investment in the Trump administration may depend on Dina Powell, the former Goldman Sachs executive who was named, with Ivanka Trump’s help, assistant to the president and senior counselor for economic initiatives.
Powell joined Ivanka, the president and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Monday’s roundtable meeting in the Cabinet Room on women entrepreneurs.
She helped stock the guest lists for Ivanka’s dinner parties on women in the workplace and joined the First Daughter in a meeting with Priscilla Chen.
At Goldman, the Egyptian-born Powell, who also served in the Bush administration, managed the $4 billion impact investing portfolio and the firm’s foundation. She helped parlay Goldman’s $50 million commitment to 10,000 Women into $600 million from the World Bank, OPIC and others to provide women entrepreneurs in developing countries with education, capital and mentors.
