October, 2022 – London, New York – Money20/20, the world’s leading Fintech show is back again showcasing the fintech industry’s diverse voices and talent in Las Vegas October 23 – 26, at The Venetian. This year, Money20/20 is pleased to partner with Synchrony, a leading consumer financial services company, as the lead sponsor for the Do.Better.Together. initiative. Building off of the Money20/20 Europe show in Amsterdam in June that had more than 41% of all speakers being female subject matter experts, at Money20/20 USA, 45%+ of all speakers will be female subject matter experts.
Money20/20 believes that to make progress towards positive movement in the space, it is imperative to highlight talent from diverse backgrounds by offering tailored opportunities through its platforms and programs, collaborating with the fintech community to empower real change and erode systemic bias. In 2018, to address inequality, Money20/20 launched ‘RiseUp’ and later added ‘AMPLIFY’ in 2021 under the larger umbrella, ‘Do.Better.Together’ aimed at moving the dial on inequalities within financial services.
RiseUp is a global program designed to help women unlock the next steps in their careers, no matter what stage they are at. RiseUp provides women leaders with the network, tools and techniques needed to help them strategically advance and level up in the industry.
Since its inception in 2018, more than 250+ women from around the world have participated in RiseUp programs, with more than 60% of participants being women of color. The impact of the program is far-reaching, providing aspiring women leaders with the information and, critically, the network to create a roadmap for their desired career path.
According to feedback sourced from Money20/20’s survey, to date, the program has had a significant impact:
- Over half of the participants have received a promotion/moved into a more senior role since RiseUp.
- 80% felt more prepared for promotion after RiseUp.
- 82% felt the RiseUp network helped progress their career/opened new opportunities.
- 96% would recommend the program to their peers.
AMPLIFY is a program created to provide people of color exposure and opportunity within the industry, using the Money20/20 global platform to connect participants to the fintech community. Amplify also gives participants exclusive access to forward-thinking leaders and idea-sharing conversations with top C-level executives and special guests.
“Do.Better.Together is a strong passion area for us. We created Do.Better.Together to deliver tangible steps to real-world action – not simply facilitate another conversation on imbalance,” said RiseUp’s Founder & President of Money20/20, Tracey Davies. “RiseUp started on a piece of paper in early 2018 to further a gender-equal world, free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. We are dedicated to our goal of Money20/20 being a platform for positive, tangible and meaningful contribution to diversity in financial services. We are delighted to have Synchrony as our headline partner for Do.Better.Together, as they know, like we do, the value that diversity brings to our ecosystem.”
“Synchrony has long championed equity, diversity and inclusion. We believe that inclusivity drives innovation, fuels growth, and represents the future we envision in fintech,” said Michael Matthews, Chief Diversity, Inclusion and Corporate Responsibility Officer at Synchrony. “We are honored to have Synchrony leaders on the RiseUp and AMPLIFY boards and to partner with Money20/20 to provide a platform to develop, advance and elevate diverse voices.”
