FinTech's DEI Discussions #TalentofFinTech | Wendy Papworth, Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion at FNZ Group

Nadia Edwards-Dashti, CCO & Wendy Papworth,

Joining Nadia on this episode of the Talent of FinTech Podcast is Wendy Papworth, FNZ Group's first Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion.

FNZ Group's commitment to DE&I is unquestionable. And Wendy embodies the latter, taking on this role to ensure every employee is set up for success. From introducing a menopause policy, to furthering their Open Global Mobility structure, diversity and inclusion is considered from every lens; the notion that DE&I is agnostic of business and location is reinforced. 

A crucial focus for Wendy is socioeconomic diversity. Wendy shares the shocking statistic that 9/10 people that lead a team in the financial industry come from a high socioeconomic background. 

Making a role in financial services accessible to everyone, irrespective of background, is crucial to furthering growth and success. We need to understand a diverse array of life experiences and ensure they are given the space to play a central role in the development of products and solutions. 

Thank you Wendy for joining us on the Talent of FinTech Podcast. This is a fantastic insight into a role that we hope will be increasingly more common across financial services.
