We hope you enjoy this podcast. Be sure to keep up with the latest discussion and join in the conversation on Twitter!

Gender inequality is more than statistics or sensational headlines. It not only impacts women, but also their families, businesses, and society as a whole.

When you uplift women, you inject more voices, ideas, and perspectives, in what we do and how we do things. As diverse as our customers are, how do we expect to understand their needs if we ourselves are homogenous?

How would we bring innovative ideas to modern day banking when we ignore the talents (and the needs) of half of our demographics?

‘The Other 50’ is a new Rhetoriq series – featuring amazing women in fintech and finance. We want to look beyond gender – and inspire our listeners with their work and their life stories. Each of us is unique – and we all have a role to play. Together – all genders – we can create a better and more inclusive society for all.

Let’s give voice to those who aren’t always heard. Let’s invite more people to the dinner table.
