Why is diversity important?
A diverse pool of talents is the key driving force for prosperity, innovation and sustainability in Finance & Tech. We simply cannot be satisfied with female founders in the German startup ecosystem of just 16 percent – in FinTechs even less. With more female founders, managers and investors more innovative (financing) ideas come to our industry and products plus services are improved. In order to leverage the full potential of our ecosystem, we need to increase diversity.
The Center for Financial Inclusion (CFI) works to advance inclusive financial services for the billions of people who currently lack the financial tools needed to improve their lives and prosper. We leverage partnerships to conduct rigorous research and test promising solutions, and then advocate for evidence-based change.

Fintech firms and digital lending firms play a dual role in supporting diversity and inclusion. First, by virtue of being one of the new-age sectors with minimal legacy issues, fintech has seen a much wider participation from not just women but also other LGBQT, Queer and others. Through our members, we at DLAI support a level playing field and equal opportunity for all.
Second, by increasing access to relevant financial services that are free of any biases, fintech firms play a very important role in supporting growth and inclusion. DLAI For instance, encourages bias free AL/ML technology. Credit underwriting which considers any type of caste, religion or gender is highly discouraged.

Our results show that, in fintech, women are six times more likely to be heads of marketing than CEOs and nearly ten times more likely to be heads of HR. As a progressive industry, fintech is adopting the behaviours that have been prevalent for many years in traditional financial institutions.
It is time to redesign and reconstruct the roles of women in our industry. It is vital for women to build on their experience by taking on responsibility in financial management such as profit and loss, and to get involved in business development, sales, and C-level positions in order to excel. I personally want them to aim for roles that are pivotal in a company – if not CEO, then COO, CCO, CTO/CPO or a more empowered and commercially minded CMO.
By developing commercial skills women set themselves up for entrepreneurship and independence.
