Action Alert | The Ugly: FinTech World Forum 2019 Is Missing Women Speakers
Earlier this week, Bloomberg.com published an article claiming that fintechs founded by women are better investments than those founded exclusively by men. Great news! But maybe not for the organizers of FinTech World Forum 2019. Why, you ask? Take a look at their speaker list. What do you see? 13 men and zero women, which is completely unacceptable. Clearly, if there are enough women at fintechs for a study to be conducted on them, there should be enough to speak at FinTech World Forum.
Thank you to our friends at Gender Bias (@ExposingGender) for sharing this with us.
Clearly, @fintechwforum thinks only men know what they’re talking about when it comes to financial technology, because there are ZERO women speaking at their upcoming conference. h/t @ExposingGender #FinTech #GenderAvenger https://www.genderavenger.com/blog/action-alert-fintech-world-forum-2019
