Who is YOUR best person for a job?

Nadia Edwards-Dashti, Chief Customer Officer at Harrington Starr, is walking the talk for change and positively affecting the shocking gender imbalance in the financial technology space.

Speaking at Harrington Starr and IG Group’s International Women’s Day Event, UnconventionALL: Inclusion Through a Different Lens, Nadia discusses the pervasive barriers in the workplace, focusing particularly on hiring practices and promotion opportunities.

She challenges the notion of selecting the "best person for the job," urging listeners to consider inclusivity and diversity as collective responsibilities.

We are reminded of the importance of recognising potential and transferable skills over experience and call for reevaluating biases in the workplace to foster a more inclusive environment.
