It’s 2021. You already know how important inclusivity is. Let’s not kid ourselves though. We still need to see far more diversity across the money ecosystem.
RiseUp is our global programme to help with that. How? By providing tomorrow’s female leaders from across the industry with the support, skills and tools they need to turbo boost their career to the next level.
Since 2018 over 150 women from Singapore to Argentina and beyond have participated, with more than 60% of participants being women of colour. We kicked off 2020 by surveying alumna on where they are now and the impact RiseUp has had on them:
"RiseUp gave me the confidence to go for a more senior role and negotiate higher pay. "
Director, Real Time Payments
We believe diversity and inclusivity is key to driving our industry forward and to make that happen we:
Lead from the front to amplify the business benefits across Financial Services and Fintech.
Empower women with access and actionable skills so they can unlock their full potential.
Connect industry ‘movers and shakers’ with tomorrow’s leaders to help them build their tribe and experience career changing opportunities.
Inspire others in our industry to create actionable plans for inclusion and empowerment.
"My experience strengthened me as a CEO and founder and connected me to a priceless support network I have relied on a lot since then."
