Stephen and Ayesha Curry are joining the advisory council for Goldman Sachs’ One Million Black Women initiative, Axios is first to report.

Why it matters: The initiative has committed to invest more than $10 billion in Black women over the next 10 years. It comes as banks and large companies are increasingly putting money behind rhetoric about advancing racial equity.

What’s new: Goldman hosted 17 listening sessions and heard from more than 10,000 Black women, in order to guide investment decisions.

  • CEO David Solomon will hold an advisory council meeting Monday to launch the first round of investments.
