FinTech's DEI Discussions #WomenofFinTech

Rianna Kelly, Senior Manager— Data Modeling & Analytics Engineering - Zepz

“Fintech is an action-orientated industry. What actions are we taking here? So I would really encourage everyone to step back and think, what are you doing?”

On this latest episode of FinTech's DEI Discussions, Nadia is joined by Rianna Kelly, Senior Manager— Data Modeling & Analytics Engineering at Zepz.

In this episode, Rianna details her transition from traditional financial services to her current role in fintech, where she focuses on digital and financial inclusion in emerging markets. 

She discusses the critical need for gender inclusivity and the impactful roles women can play in fintech sectors like payments and remittance, which align with global sustainability efforts.

Rianna also delves into the strategies that foster an inclusive workplace, highlighting the importance of embedding inclusion into business models rather than treating it as an afterthought.
