Joining Nadia in the studio for this episode of the ground-breaking Women of FinTech Podcast is Kate Wilson, Global Head of Consumer Deposits and Payments at RFI Global.
Kate's tenure at RFI Global is well beyond the average often seen across our industry. We explore why Kate has stayed at RFI Global for over 10 years; from exposure and the opportunity to engage with a variety of roles, to the evolving growth-orientated culture, we gain an exclusive insight into the retention strategy at the company.
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. Presenting and public speaking wasn't an inevitable engagement for Kate; but with the right support structures and positive training, Kate was elevated to feel comfortable as a public speaker. 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.
Thank you Kate for joining us on the Women of FinTech Podcast!
