Survey Report: Women in Fintech – metrics and views from the LendIt community

What’s the current reality for women in fintech?

It’s no secret that women are under-represented in fintech, with some studies suggesting that only 8% of global fintech directors are women. The exact percentage may vary slightly from country to country, but unfortunately this gender disparity appears to be a global issue.

We recently surveyed almost 100 leading fintechs on their gender policies, experiences and views. This report summarizes their answers.

Key findings include:

  • 20% of companies surveyed have no female C-Suite executives
  • Marketing remains the most female-friendly department
  • Most survey respondents could not list any company policies that aim to support women

As a part of our women in fintech initiative for LendIt Fintech Europewe are excited to announce that 35% of our expert speakers will be female powerhouses and we will host a Tuesday evening Women in Fintech Night Out. See here for more details, and to continue this discussion join them in London this November 19-20.
