American Banker, Arizent’s essential resource for senior executives in financial services, has launched a new recognition program: The Most Influential Women in Fintech. Nominations are now open and will close on February 15, 2023. Honorees will be recognized during the annual DIGITAL BANKING conference, which will be held June 12-14, 2023 at The Boca Raton in Boca Raton, Florida.
“Though there are many women doing notable things in fintech, female leaders are still underrepresented in the C-suites of financial technology companies,” said Penny Crosman, Executive Editor, Technology at American Banker. “Fewer than 10% of fintech CEOs are female and companies founded solely by women receive only 2.4% of the capital invested in U.S. venture-backed startups. We want to put a spotlight on the standout women in this sector and help move this needle.”
This program is open to any applicants who work at a financial technology company, venture capital firm, or consulting company that works with fintech. Applications will be read by a selection committee of American Banker staff members and judged on teamwork, personal initiative, and other leadership qualities.
The Most Influential Women in Fintech is a part of American Banker’s continued coverage of the progress in DEI measures throughout financial institutions and expands on the publication’s mission to support, empower, celebrate and advance women in the banking industry.Source: PR Web
