Innovate Finance and Augmentum Fintech are delighted to announce their Women in Fintech: Speed Mentoring event, the first of its kind, hosted by Tide and taking place on Wednesday 8th January.
The importance of mentoring can’t be overstated in boosting diversity and inclusion in an industry that still has a long way to go in these areas. Women represent just 29% of the fintech workforce, 17% of senior fintech roles and of the $1.7 billion that flowed into UK fintech firms in 2018, only 3% went to firms with a female founder [ref].
The Speed Mentoring evening will be a high-energy opportunity for women working in fintech to kick off the New Year by sharing challenges and exchanging ideas or advice, meeting a large number of people in a short space of time.
Places are limited so please register your interest to attend as either a mentor or mentee as soon as possible.
More information and guidance can be found on the registration page.
