Every year, Currencycloud proudly celebrates International Women’s Day (IWD) across our global offices and alongside our partners and friends. The theme for 2023’s IWD s #EmbraceEquity. This is more than a theme at Currencycloud. We live and breathe it with our Equality & Belonging Squad with its pillar-specific groups which include BL@CC (black at Currencycloud), GD@CC (women’s forum and seminar space), Women at CC, and Parenthood & Guardianship. But we do recognize that while Fintech and banking is increasingly home to women at all levels, it is still an unbalanced field. It’s why we have a gender-neutral hiring policy, and host events like Women in Tech and Women in Banking. Since our acquisition by Visa, Currencycloud has been in partnership with Visa’s extensive network of women’s groups to make Currencycloud as equitable a place to work as possible.
We’ve spoken to three amazing female leaders in Fintech to hear about their views on everything from the challenges as women in Fintech, what they can do to impact future generations, to this year’s theme #EmbraceEquity. You can find out a little more about what they had to say here, or listen to their responses in our 2023 International Women’s Day episode of the Payments Innovation podcast series.
