June at The Fintech Times: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

There’s a new monthly theme here at The Fintech Times, and this June we’re taking a deep dive into Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). 

DEI feels more relevant now than ever before. No longer just a trending topic but an essential consideration to not only your business operations but in your offering as well. The fintech industry is known for its innovative, agile reputation, and yet it still faces a significant diversity problem that threatens to halt its growth and stop that innovation moving.

In the UK, women hold only 30 per cent of fintech jobs and 17 per cent of senior leadership roles, and ethnic minorities are significantly underrepresented. Disability representation is even more lacking, with disabled or neurodivergent individuals often not even getting a look in.

This month, we’re going to explore what DEI really means for fintechs, and exactly what needs to be done to create an inclusive, accessible industry we can all be proud of.

From uncovering real-life stories as to the importance of feeling included, as well as policies that have enacted real change from the ground up – we have spoken to industry leaders to learn more about how they’re championing DEI and paving the way into the future.

Join us throughout June for thought leadership on DEI in the fintech industry
