Rise Up - Empowering women in leadership
Money20/20 believes inclusive businesses are better businesses. To promote this value, Rise Up was created to address the gender imbalance in leadership positions within the Financial Services and Fintech industry.
Rise Up is a global program with local perspective, designed to provide support and actionable skills for women working to take the next steps to increased seniority within their careers. This exclusive program will expose participants to contacts, mentors, executive training and learnings that will catapult their career to the next level.
While gender diversity is a global issue that has taken center stage around the world, it’s even more pressing in Asia-Pacific. Some of Asia’s biggest financial players continue to play catch up with Western markets and have recognized the business case for female leadership. A program like Rise Up at Money20/20 Asia will accelerate progress and redefine the status-quo.
Our goal is to:
- Embrace inclusivity as a strategic imperative to drive our industry forward
- Amplify the business benefits of inclusivity across the Financial Services and Fintech industry
- Empower women with actionable skills and learnings that can catapult their career to the next level
- Actively support and inspire women early in their career to take advantage of the bold content, industry luminaries and career changing opportunities at Money20/20
- Serve as a platform to inspire others to create actionable plans for inclusion and empowerment in our industry
Why does inclusivity make good business sense?
Successful businesses see inclusiveness as a competitive advantage that’s resulted in greater returns and lasting impact.
