FinTech's DEI Discussions #Women of FinTech | Silvia Mensdorff-Pouilly, Co-Founder of European Women's Payment Network (EWPN)

Nadia Edwards-Dashti, CCO & Silvia Mensdorff-Pouilly,

Joining Nadia on this episode of the Women of FinTech Podcast is Silvia Mensdorff-Pouilly, SVP Head of EMEA Corporates & International Banking at FIS, and the Co-Founder of the European Women’s Payment Network (EWPN).

The EWPN is undoubtedly one of the most celebrated networks in the industry — and Silvia offers us an exclusive look at their eye-opening origins. Tackling unconscious bias and advocating for proactive change, the EWPN is catalysing a positive shift in the payments space. This episode is a masterclass in positive disruption. 

We are shown how to elevate, sponsor and advocate for our female colleagues. We’re reminded to do that even when they’re not in the room. We’re reminded that allyship isn’t a token gesture. 

And Silvia explores the various lenses through which we should consider diversity. In her role as Head of EMEA, Silvia is frequently exposed to differing backgrounds and experiences — and it is this breadth of diversity that can make our industry so powerful. It means greater diversity of thought, greater innovation, and sponsoring a more inclusive future.
