FinTech's DEI Discussions #HumansofFinTech | Wasim Mushtaq, Managing Director at 1Consulting Group

Nadia Edwards-Dashti, CCO & Wasim Mushtaq,

Joining Nadia on this episode of The DEI Discussions is Wasim Mushtaq, Managing Director at 1Consulting Group. We open with a very honest conversation about Wasim's journey into the financial technology space.

Wasim doesn't come with the typical professional profile, having an educational and personal background that often isn't typically associated with finance. But it is refreshing to hear that this was welcomed- and that support has kickstarted an impressive career. 

This support has had a domino effect, and Wasim is active in mentoring the next generation of professionals in the space. Recognising your ability to enact change, and utilising your unique circumstances to change the narrative, is how we can all walk the talk for change in the industry. 

The pair explore the further tangible steps you can take to ensure DE&I is a central part of your operations; stressing the importance of having diversity in your team to promote innovation and growth-orientated discussions. Thank you Wasim for joining us on the Humans of FinTech Podcast!
