Joining Nadia on this episode of the The DEI Discussions is Krystle McGilvery, Founder at Mind Over Money.
Since being diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD at the beginning of 2022, Krystle not only understands now why she had to work harder when she was younger, but also since sharing publicly has realised she isn't alone.
Sharing her journey publicly, Krystle prompted a host of conversations with her expansive network, giving people the confidence to discuss their personal relation to dyslexia and ADHD. She listened to them and has now built a community, The Growth Assemble, to support the neurodiverse community by taking a collective approach to achieving goals, improving financial confidence, and building social capital.
With this, Krystle has recently won the Top 80 Neurodiversity Evangelists UK 2023 award as well as Top 100 Black Women in Tech 2020, Top 100 Women INvolve Yahoo Future Leaders 2022 and Great British Businesswoman Rising Star Winner 2022.
Krystle's position as Head of Finance has afforded her the unique position of better understanding how to address the financial needs of all employees. She has proactively researched the correlation between improving employee financial wellbeing, confidence, productivity and businesses performance- and this led to her founding Mind Over Money.
Thank you Krystle for joining us on the Women of FinTech Podcast!

Susana also offers her thoughts on the importance of events such as FinTech Connect. Its ability to unite different industry silos, and provide a platform for diverse audiences to discuss collective opportunities, is unparalleled.
One of the key conversations had at FinTech Connect was around the newness which characterises the space. The industry presents a unique opportunity for us all to drive innovation- and that demands inviting diverse creativity into the space.
Susana shares her thoughts on how we can make diversity of thought the norm in financial services; and create an industry-wide inclusive culture that will catalyse that crucial collective growth.

"Get comfortable with change because that's something we can be certain of."
Angy Watson, COO at Paymentology, joins Nadia on this episode of the ground-breaking Women of FinTech Podcast.
Throughout her career journey, Angy has proactively placed herself on a steep learning curve, exposing herself to a plethora of opportunities and roles.
Hugely influencing this professional outlook is Angy's passion for purposeful learning. Reminding us to stay humble and motivating us to reach a new future stage, active learning has the ability to reframe our approach to business.
This is particularly true of inclusion. Angy reminds us that inclusion isn't about making token gestures; it's about representing the fullness of humanity and of people. For this to come to fruition, we must make psychological safety the norm, and create learning opportunities that showcase just how vital inclusion is.
And this demands we look beyond gender when it comes to DE&I; we need more differences in a boardroom than just gender.

She emphasises that diversity is not just about gender or race, but also about diversity in backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences.
Emma also tells us about her experiences at Fintech Connect, where she moderated a panel discussion on diversity and inclusion in FinTech. She highlights the key themes that emerged during the panel, including the need for companies to prioritise DEI, the importance of fostering a sense of belonging and the role of leadership in driving cultural change.
Overall, Emma's insights on diversity and inclusion in FinTech highlight the importance of creating a culture of inclusivity, not only for the benefit of underrepresented groups, but also for the success and sustainability of companies in the industry.

Joining Nadia on this episode of The DEI Discussions is Kate Chatzopoulos, Global Head of Operations Strategy at Symphony.
We explore Kate's role in transforming the operations sphere, augmenting workflows to create vital efficiencies and bring unparalleled value to key stakeholders.
Kate's career journey thus far has been incredibly impressive, and she shares the role confidence played in this. Recognising your own value isn't always an inherent mindset, but for Kate it's crucial that firms and colleagues support one another in creating an environment where self-confidence is a reality for all.
And the pair discuss what it will take to address the gender imbalance in technology. Whilst the needle is slowly moving, more action must be taken to create awareness and to enact change. But how exactly do we walk the talk?

The DEI Discussions #WomenofFinTech | Rukayyat Kolawole, Founder of PaceUP Invest

Joining Nadia on this episode of the The DEI Discussions is Rukayyat Kolawole, Founder of PaceUP Invest.
Rukayyat expresses how challenging it was to move from Nigeria (a country that encourages women to be successful) to the UK, where a distinct male-dominated culture exists in the finance space. Rukayyat has since moved to Germany and that is where she founded PaceUP Invest- and until recently, she was the only black female fintech founder in Germany.
Growing up in a community where women empowered women, she carried those learns and culture forwards, creating PaceUp to help women and underrepresented communities with finance, and encouraging a greater understanding of financial well-being. It also provided Rukayyat with a platform to empower the next generation, and educate them on the role they play in driving change.
Thank you Rukayyat for joining us on the Women of FinTech Podcast!

Joining Nadia on this episode of the Humans of FinTech Podcast is Wasim Mushtaq, Managing Director at 1Consulting Group.
We open with a very honest conversation about Wasim's journey into the financial technology space. Wasim doesn't come with the typical professional profile, having an educational and personal background that often isn't typically associated with finance. But it is refreshing to hear that this was welcomed- and that support has kickstarted an impressive career.
This support has had a domino effect, and Wasim is active in mentoring the next generation of professionals in the space. Recognising your ability to enact change, and utilising your unique circumstances to change the narrative, is how we can all walk the talk for change in the industry.
The pair explore the further tangible steps you can take to ensure DE&I is a central part of your operations; stressing the importance of having diversity in your team to promote innovation and growth-orientated discussions.

Joining Nadia on this episode of the Humans of FinTech Podcast is David Heron, Head of Standards at PAY.UK.

Diversity of thought has been prevalent throughout this journey, and David praises the firms that have welcomed people into the industry from an expansive range of backgrounds.
Having a people strategy that accounts for every person is crucial- and underpinning this is respect; creating an environment where a balance between ownership and accountability is practiced, and giving space for people to grow is central to that.
And practicing respect is David's call to action for the entire industry. Learning and respecting boundaries, being mindful of diversity of backgrounds, and recognising how to implement psychological safety is how we can translate our call for respect into tangible business practice.

Rungway is a communication platform where employees and leadership can have open, honest and inclusive conversations. It gives a chance for a more diverse range of voices and topics to be brought to the fore, whether in person or anonymously.
Julie and Nadia hone in on what more can be done in FinTech concerning health, especially women’s health, and what it will take to end the stigma surrounding such conversations.

Joining Nadia on this episode of the Talent of FinTech Podcast is Wendy Papworth, FNZ Group's first Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion.
FNZ Group's commitment to DE&I is unquestionable. And Wendy embodies the latter, taking on this role to ensure every employee is set up for success. From introducing a Menopause Policy, to furthering their Open Global Mobility policy, diversity and inclusion is considered from every lens; the notion that DE&I is agnostic of business and location is reinforced.
A crucial focus for Wendy is socioeconomic diversity. Wendy shares the shocking statistic that 9/10 people that lead a team in the financial industry come from a high socioeconomic background. Making a role in financial services accessible to everyone, irrespective of background, is crucial to furthering growth and success.
We need to understand a diverse array of life experiences and ensure they are given the space to play a central role in the development of products and solutions.
Thank you Wendy for joining us on the Talent of FinTech Podcast. This is a fantastic insight into a role that we hope will be increasingly more common across financial services.

Joining Nadia on this episode of The DEI Discussions, live from FinTech Connect, is Emily Utton, COO at CLOWD9.
Having only launched towards the close of last year, FinTech Connect marked CLOWD9's first official conference. Emily shares the importance of events like this for start-ups, particularly when it comes to maximising exposure and establishing new connections.
Events are also crucial to furthering the inclusion movement in financial services. Emily joined the payments industry fifteen years ago; and was welcomed by a very different, less inclusive landscape. The pair chart the positive progress that has happened since, and reflect on what more can be done to ensure gains are entrenched and built upon.
Emily refers to financial services as a community throughout the conversation. It's a refreshing approach that reveals the ever-increasing degree of support and plentiful opportunities that are present in the space.
Thank you Emily for joining us on The DEI Discussions!
Please note, since recording Emily has been promoted from SVP (the title given to her in the podcast) to COO- congratulations Emily!

Anette and her team help organisations understand their customer's financial behaviour and how they can innovate to meet their needs through research and reports.
They recently explored the behaviour of women in finance and the impact of financial products on their lives. Anette found in her research that despite their financial success, women still tend to avoid traditional banks due to often feeling condescended.
Anette believes that by bringing in more female advisors, financial organisations can break the glass ceiling and improve their inclusion strategies. She shares how behavioural research can help organisations better understand their customers and make essential changes to be more accessible to them.

The pair go on to discuss DE&I at industry events, sharing what it takes to empower voices often underrepresented in financial services panel discussions.

We gain insight into the further actions we can take to roll the latter approach out to the entire marketplace.
And Kate also reminds us of the importance of ensuring our approach to inclusion is reflective- not one crafted by an isolated group. This will undoubtedly innovation in FinTech as we begin to speak to an inherently more diverse consumer-base.
Kate's thoughts on family policies at companies is also highly revealing of the work we all still need to do to #walkthetalk for change across the entire industry.

The pair also discuss transparency in the workplace as Emma highlights Cogo's passion for building flexible work environments for their staff– many of whom are parents and carers.

Joining Nadia in The DEI Discussions studio for this special episode are Nichola and Calli, Co-Founders of Working Wonder Consultancy.
This brilliant duo trace their distinct personal journey's, and reveal to us the experiences that led them to founding Working Wonder Consultancy. We are exposed to the discriminatory and damaging behaviours that prompted them to both to begin a new approach to work- one in which everyone has a voice and a space.
From their Going Forward to Work Philosophy, to how Ian Wright inspired a new mindset, the pair chart the practices they introduce to organisations that allow each and everyone of us to walk the talk for change.
Nichola and Calli's personal experience as parents is particularly revealing. Again, their distinct yet common experiences reveal to us all there is so much more we can be doing to support every demographic when shaping a better future for work.

Liam is all about people investment and this episode is brimming with his inspiring stories and ideas, that showcase some of the best talent in the industry. He shares the story behind the origins of Detected and how challenges from the pandemic triggered an innovative and thriving business.
He states, “there were so many people just trying to make a quick bit of money during that period and that wasn’t my motivation, which I think is so important, and it’s a part of why things have gone so well because it wasn’t that; it was actually just trying to sort out a problem.”
The conversation then turns to accessibility within the industry. Liam shares his ideas on building a culture that is in favour of an underserved generation and why universities– and the education system as a whole– aren't tailored for everyone.

We explore the influence of the buy now, pay later movement on the healthcare sector, and how this has expanded opportunities to provide sustainable solutions to those unable to access comprehensive finance.

On this episode of the Humans of FinTech Podcast, Nadia is joined by the brilliant David Sayers, Consultant at Finceler8.
This episode could be a wake-up call for many. Having redirected his career to focus more on giving to society, not just taking money, David reminds us to constantly reevaluate the work we do- recognise your privilege and reassess your skillset.
David truly hones in on how important it is to recognise the breadth of our skillset beyond our job title. You may be a banking director but you can also be philanthropic, a skilled musician, or an avid hiker. We must begin leveraging the entire diversity of our abilities, and using that to give back in a way we are innately able to.
Taking his own advice, David became heavily involved in charitable endeavours and assumed position as a school governor. Putting action behind his talk David is instigating tangible change in an accessible way.

Anu is passionate about her teams and that resonates throughout this entire episode. "In the end, a business is just the people that work in it. You could build the fanciest tech you wanted to but if the team wasn’t working the right way, you’d be done."

Welcome back to another episode of Women of FinTech where today, Nadia is joined by the fantastic Kelly Jackson, Chief People Officer at Luno.

In this episode, Kelly illustrates the contrast of the west's perception of crypto as an investment game in comparison to other countries – i.e. those who might have a corrupt government or have a high inflation rate etc. – who view crypto as a stable, secure system of payment.
Kelly highlights Luno's mission to de-centralise finance and teach people the power of crypto and the blockchain. Their educational approach to digital assets aims to empower individuals, no matter where they are in the world, to take control of their wealth.
Finally, Kelly touches on the challenges she faced as a single parent and how it shaped her into an empathetic leader determined to support all individuals, however their personal situations may impact their jobs.

Welcome to a very special episode of our #WalkTheTalk mini series! Today, Nadia is delighted to be joined by the fantastic Felicitas Coulibaly, Senior Manager of Digital Sales and Cultural Ambassador at Mambu.
In this conversation, the pair discuss what it means to build safe and secure workplaces for everyone. Felicitas makes light of the importance of representation of different people, especially in the male-dominated world of tech sales. Addressing the advantage and privilege of having good leaders in her career journey, Felicitas makes it clear that she is determined for her team to feel they can express themselves freely "without shame or fear."
"At the end of the day we are a sales company, we need to make some numbers, bring in some revenue. How is that going to work if the people working for you aren’t happy, healthy or feeling secure?"
The pair then talk about what it means to walk the talk in a noisy, yet somehow lonely, world of social media and encourage us to listen to learn. For this special episode, we ask you to talk, but talk with intent, let's really listen, let's really understand one another before jumping to conclusions.

iCreditWorks is a FinTech startup that wants to change how consumers access finance or medical services at the point of care. Cristian is working towards making banking and finances more accessible for the every day consumer no matter their situation in their career or personal life.
"I realised that while society was changing fast, banking was slow to adjust and keep pace with the evolving needs and wants of the modern consumers. I decided to join the FinTech space where the ability to respond to – and even anticipate – consumer needs is literally a matter of life and death."
Reflecting on his past career and being appointed executive sponsor of the diversity committee at Scotiabank, Cristian addresses the key to real, long-lasting success in inclusion; commitment from both the leadership of the institution and the employees directly impacted.
"To me, for inclusion to truly succeed, we first have to be aware of our biases. Without awareness, there is just habit."

We are forced to take a step back and ask, are our often unconscious gender bias's affecting the way we view and interact with people. Take time to reflect internally, explore the wider picture, and better yourself- an action which will undoubtedly positively impact the entire organisation and industry.
Thank you Megan for walking the talk with us.

The 17% List: Has the Needle Moved? 📈
Clearly, things are going in the right direction and the pair are here to celebrate that and to talk about how we can accelerate this positive change even more!
Reports in early 2020 showed that only 17% of all technology roles in the UK were filled by women. This low figure is a reflection of what needs to change; we need to hire and support more women in the space because despite what people may think, women DO exist in tech.
We are honoured to have contributed to the recent progression made in moving the needle for change and will continue to spread awareness beyond when it reaches an acceptable number!

This week, Nadia is joined by the illustrious all-round FinTech expert, Elizabeth Lumley – Technology and Transaction Banking Editor at The Banker.
Elizabeth has been in the FinTech world since the 90s when she applied for a journalism ad in the New York Times to cover a publication called Inside Market Data. As a self-professed "hardcore financial technology person", Elizabeth has been covering the FinTech space before everyone even started calling it "FinTech"!
The pair discuss the current power imbalance around financial inclusion which puts millions of people, especially poorer women, at a disadvantage. Elizabeth states, "money is power, money is freedom... There’s a big difference between knowing your mortgage is going to be paid every month, and you have food on the table and Santa Claus comes to your house every year… that’s a big deal that changes a lot of people’s lives. The banking industry supports that as a service and I think some of the best bankers in the world are people that understand that they are supporting people’s lives"The conversation leads to the topic of sexism and misogyny routed within the startup world and Elizabeth shares some truly inspiring and powerful messages for those in minority groups who have ambitions in this industry. Lumley stresses the importance of diversity and how having people from different backgrounds within your team will drive a plethora of knowledge you didn't have, and didn't know existed.
This conversation left Nadia with the hairs on her back standing on end... It's well worth a listen and will inspire you to consider others' perspectives.

"We summarise complex data into one word, long or short. Long means to buy, short means to sell, it's that simple."
Nadia and Clara also discuss why there are less women in trading and how, based on her own upbringing, teaching 'financial literacy' to both boys and girls can build a more inclusive future in the industry. Clara summarises, "women shouldn't hide behind their savings account and at One Signal, we want to help them."
