Every week the show host John Siracusa talks with amazing fintech leaders and entrepreneurs through conversation uncovers the amazing stories behind them, their creations and the most important topics in fintech.
In today’s episode, John and his fellow co host, Joy Schwartz from Lendit chat with three women fintech leaders such as Jennifer Barrett from Acorns, Casey Taylor from Digital Currency Group and Andrea Gellert from Ondeck. The mission of this episode is to help get the word out and to encourage more women to take on leadership roles at fintechs and help the industry cultivate an environment that supports it.
The average percentage of women in the C-Suite at fintech companies is 19%. Just last month Lendit released the “‘State of the Women in Fintech’ survey Which reinforced the need for this particular episode.
