The power of inclusive leadership

We have always known how important it is to be inclusive especially at the leadership level.

RiseUp is our global program that answers the call to champion more diversity across the money ecosystem. We provide tomorrow’s women leaders with the network, tools and techniques needed to help them strategically advance to their next career level.

RiseUp is an explicitly inclusive program for all who identify as women.

Applications for RiseUp at Money20/20 Europe 2021 are now open

Application for RiseUp at Money20/20 USA 2021 will open in June

Empowering Women Leaders

Since 2018 over 150 women from Singapore to Argentina and beyond have participated in our global RiseUp program, with more than 60% of participants being women of colour. We kicked off 2020 by surveying our alumna on where they are now and the impact RiseUp has had on them:

  • Over half have received a promotion/moved into a more senior role since RiseUp
  • 80% felt more prepared for promotion after RiseUp
  • 82% felt the RiseUp network helped progress their career/opened new opportunities
  • 96% would recommend the programme to their peers

"RiseUp gave me the confidence to go for a more senior role and negotiate higher pay. "

Ellie Hewitt

Director, Real Time Payments


We believe in diverse leadership

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."
