New member portal from Pan-European Women’s network inspires connection and change
Amsterdam, 14th December 2020 – The European Women Payments Network (EWPN) has launched a new online community portal to enhance the communications for and between its members with messaging, forums and interest groups. Supporting collaboration between members, the new portal also features an events calendar, access to EWPN programmes and learning opportunities, and will include posts for job listings in the near future.
EWPN launched in 2015 to champion diversity and inclusion in fintech & payments and now reaches over 350,000 individuals and organisations. As the first and only pan-European organisation for women in FinTech & Payments, EWPN also runs many workshops and networking events throughout the year, as well as a mentorship scheme.
The new portal allows members to connect digitally with any other EWPN member, find and be a source of support for other women in FinTech and Payments and actively participate in the diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) movement to help change the industry today and for future generations.
Martha Mghendi-Fisher, Founder of EWPN, commented: “EWPN is dedicated to building a community for women in the FinTech and Payments industry across Europe. Our membership is growing rapidly as more people recognise the significant institutionalised problems within the industry – not just gender discrimination, but discrimination based on age, race, sexuality, ethnicity, disability, religion and political beliefs as well.
“It is our hope, and the objective of EWPN, that in bringing these issues to the fore, we can raise awareness and begin to make real change for the sake of future generations. This portal is an important step in that journey. It should help us to all get involved, spread the word, and get even more people taking an active role in creating a stronger, more diverse, inclusive, creative, innovative and valuable financial services industry.”
