Money20/20, the leading global Fintech, Payments and Financial Services event, will sponsor the 2018 European Women Payments Network (EWPN) Conference Awards Dinner to demonstrate its commitment to diversity within the financial services industry. The second annual EWPN Conference will begin on October 15th with a celebratory dinner and awards ceremony at the Tropen Museum in Amsterdam.
Money20/20 has made fostering gender inclusivity throughout the Financial Services industry a brand priority, launching Rise Up at the upcoming Money20/20 USA event in Las Vegas. Rise Up is a new, annual program designed to empower the next generation of female leaders through actionable skills, tools, mentorship and learnings in order to take their careers to the next level.
“Each year, Money20/20 brings together visionaries and innovators from every corner of the industry – diversity is a vital aspect of this community,” said Money20/20 President, Tracey Davies. “We are always eager to support organisations with similar ambitions. We are excited to have the opportunity to do just that in sponsoring the kick-off of the only Pan-European conference for fostering diversity in Payments and Fintech.”
Following the Awards Dinner on October 15th, the EWPN Conference will take place on October 16th. EWPN is pleased to welcome other event sponsors, including ACI, Attra, Credorax, Paypal and Paysafe.
Martha Meghendi-Fisher, Founder of the European Women Payments Network noted, “EWPN is committed to creating a more diverse and inclusive industry. To achieve that we need the support of the entire industry. To have a leading global brand such as Money20/20 supporting our Awards Dinner is an invaluable boost which will help us make an even greater impact.”
