Diversity and Inclusion is an area of focus which the FINOS board and community have selected to prioritise. This panel is one of the first initiatives to make a positive difference in this area. In this session we’ll explore the journey of four successful women throughout their impressive careers in technology and finance. The panelists will share their career defining moments and challenges they’ve had to overcome. They will give their perspective on what helped them advance their careers, covering topics from the importance of raising your profile, networking and involvement in open source. We hope to provide insights that will help other women advance in their career, and to provide everyone with a better understanding of the challenges that women face. Everyone is encouraged to participate as all can benefit from the stories shared by the panelists. The panel is interactive and attendees will be encouraged to take part in the discussion by submitting their questions.
