FinTech's DEI Discussions #WomenOfFinTech | Mara Poloni, Business Operations Manager at Qwist

Nadia Edwards-Dashti, CCO & Mara Poloni,

‘I knew that I didn't want to change myself to fit into a role, or let's say tailor myself to a role anymore. But instead I wanted to find the perfect role, the role that fits me, like a tailored dress.’ Today on FinTech's DEI Discussions, Mara Poloni, Business Operations Manager at Qwist. In this episode, Mara shares her own experiences of gender imbalance within the workplace, and the constant pressure to tailor oneself to a role. Mara breaks the cycle, and speaks to the desire to find that perfect role, tailored to you instead. The conversation also explores the value of leaning on one’s network, having those connections to help progress from one career step to the next, as well as overcoming imposter syndrome when starting new roles. Mara is also able to offer her thoughts on what is required to ensure genuine workplace inclusion, starting with confidence from within, but also collective efforts within a business to ensure everyone feels heard.
