May 04 2018

Women leaders are essential to any organisation and industry. While gender diversity is an important aspect, it is the culture and value set that is directly influenced in a big way. For the Fintech industry in particular, inclusion and diversity are traits it just cannot do without to flourish globally. And as opposed to the traditional banking sector in the past decades, we continue to see more women as entrepreneurs and holding key positions across a range of financial services organisations.
