New for 2016, the Woman in Technology (W.I.T.) Award – in partnership with FemTechLeaders – will award an outstanding woman for her distinguished leadership and inspiring work in making a positive impact in the financial services industry.
From changing business practices through technology, to delivering implementations, to innovating and crafting Fintech solutions, the W.I.T. Award recognizes the initiative and dedication leadership demands, and the progress it inspires.
The W.I.T. Award celebrates the spirit of inclusion, diversity, and creativity. Together, FemTechLeaders and Banking Technology look forward to lauding the woman who exemplifies these values in action, be it in banking, Fintech, consulting and policy making, or operations. The W.I.T. Award recognizes that leadership is not designated by title or role, but by action, inspiration, and service.
