Fintech Diversity Radar launches to measure role women play in sector

Chargebacks911 and Fi911, along with real-time data company findexable, have launched a global platform that measures the role women play in the fintech industry.

The Fintech Diversity Radar will enable progress and identify measurable steps to improve diversity in the sector and support the growth of the digital economy.

Starting with a real-time global market map and report, and culminating in the introduction of a digital scorecard, the radar aims to reduce exclusion among female team members, entrepreneurs and customers, raising the bar when setting best practises for bolstering gender equality.

Among those joining the board for the radar is Chargebacks911 co-founder and chief operating officer, Monica Eaton-Cardone (pictured above), a long-time advocate for women in technology and leadership roles.

The radar has been created at a time when the fintech industry will play an important role in the UK’s economic recovery as it emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Denise Gee, founder and managing director at findexable, said: “It is in fintech where we can finally make a difference – borne from a desire to level the playing field by using digital innovation to create cheaper, more transparent and accessible financial services for all.”

Commenting on the partnership and initiative, Monica added: “It is with great pride that I join such strong and trailblazing women sitting on the Fintech Diversity Radar.

“For too long, women have been unrepresented in the progressive and disruptive sector that is fintech and it is the work of platforms like this that will pave the way for the future generations of talented and empowered women to take their rightful seats at top tables at businesses all over the world.
“Diversity has long since been a passion of mine and it’s an honour to share my experience and expertise while forever learning from those around me; there has never been a better time to support such a fundamental movement.”
