How can men be allies in building gender equity in fintech? Hear from active advocates, ideate to offer practical, adoptable solutions
About this Event
We are thrilled to announce FintechWomen’s 2019 inaugural program Let’s Start with Allies on Tuesday, March 12th!
Our host for the program is the Stephen D. Cutler Center for Investments and Finance at Babson College. The program will be held at Babson College’s Boston Campus.
Why allies? As we engage with the community, the women give us a treasure of ideas on what can be done to change the paradigm. Men offer their wholehearted support, and on the heels ask : What can we do to help? What should we do?
The interactive two-part program is designed to provide solutions:
– Part 1: Advocates and practitioners of inclusion take stage to discuss gender diversity in fintech, particularly why and how men can be critical allies in the building of gender equity in the industry.
– Part 2: In workshop mode, each table of 5-7 attendees along with an ally-leader will ideate and offer practical and easily adoptable solutions. We will continue the dialogue online, with the solutions and other resources available and updated on our website
The panel will be moderated by:
Constance Armstrong, Executive Director, The Boston Club
Along with panelists:
Dan New, New England Financial Services Growth Markets and FinTech Leader, EY
Paul Brassil, VP IT, Boston Fed Reserve
Vasilious Roussos, Managing Director, DCU Fintech Innovation Center
