At Harrington Starr, we are constantly working to make the financial services a more inclusive space through the dynamic work we do. Nadia Edwards-Dashti, our Chief Customer Officer, is spearheading this effort. We recently caught up with her to explore the brilliant work she is doing to walk the talk for change across the entire industry.

"I wanted to share with you the work we are doing to help drive a more inclusive industry through our work in building more inclusive workplaces."

We have been raising awareness and presenting actionable change workflows through our podcasts, our blogs, magazines, social media, and I have recently published a book titled FinTech Women Walk the Talk: driving change for workplace gender equality.

We plan on walking the talk ourselves and taking strides forward through measurability and data. Polls, surveys and RFIs will be shared to help us gather better knowledge of who we know and interact with. It will also to allow for you to understand the dynamics of this marketplace and in turn allow for me to drive change whilst being able to measure progress.

My audio journey revolves around, "FinTech with Nadia: The DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) Discussions." This is a series of Podcasts which were created with purpose. I want to educate, raise awareness, empower and inspire the industry through real lessons and storytelling. I have loved celebrating the people within our industry and cannot wait to interview more.

-The Women of FinTech Podcast - Women in leadership within the FinTech community talk about their journey, challenges and steps to drive equality in the workplace.

-The Humans of FinTech Podcast - We explore that DEI isn’t only a gender issue, there is so much more to be done and celebrate what has been done so far.

-The Talent Surgery - This is a celebration of the people behind the people strategies, ensuring that environments are best set up for safety, inclusion and therefore success.

- The Families of FinTech- The ground-breaking series where we share experiences and best practice so everyone can create better environments for their working parents, carers and families.
