In today’s episode we chat with three women fintech leaders, Jennifer Barrett from Acorns, Casey Taylor from Digital Currency Group and Andrea Gellert from Ondeck. This show was co -hosted by Joy Schwartz from Lendit and the mission of this episode is to help get the word out and to encourage more women to take on leadership roles at fintechs and help the industry cultivate an environment that supports it.
It’s an alarming fact that the average percentage of women in the C-Suite at fintech companies is only 19%. Just last month Lendit released the “‘State of the Women in Fintech’ survey which reinforced the need for this particular episode.
This needs to change and there were practical actions shared during the interview that everyone could implement fairly quickly. It doesn’t take much to do something. Start by sharing this episode.
