By Megha Bhattacharya
Global Processing Services (GPS) today announced its support of findexable’s FinTech Diversity Radar, a global platform gathering progressive data for understanding women’s impact and contribution to the digital economy. The FinTech Diversity Radar will build the world’s first dataset on gender diversity in global FinTech to enable scaling companies and incumbent peers to benchmark progress and identify measurable steps to improve.
Denise Gee, Founder and Managing Director of findexable, added, “Gender diversity makes business sense – a more diverse workforce equals more success and improvement is predicated on the ability to measure accurately. To realise the promise of fintech to everyone in society, we need data that is relevant, up-to-date and validated, which is why we have launched the Diversity Radar.”
The FinTech Diversity Radar aims to build a dataset on gender diversity in global FinTech to enable scaling companies and incumbent peers to benchmark progress and identify measurable steps to improve.
Annette Evans, Vice President, People and Culture at GPS, said, “At GPS, we are continually on the lookout for how we can improve our diversity and inclusion strategies. Providing women with the opportunities to succeed in their professional and personal lives has always been embedded in our culture and our goal is to help secure an equal future for our female employees, customers, and the communities we serve. Working with a company like findexable on this ground-breaking research will allow us to deepen our understanding of the role women are playing within the fintech ecosystem.”
Recently, GPS announced that it has been selected by Mastercard as a processing partner in its FinTech Express Programme. The collaboration will enable GPS to utilise Mastercard’s expertise and accelerate FinTech developments. GPS stated that it has already been embedded into Mastercard’s FinTech Express programme.
Gee continued, “We couldn’t conduct the research on our own, and we are so thankful for the support of our experts and partners, including GPS. This is a company that has embedded diversity into the very fabric of the organisation, and its ongoing successes are a prime example of what is possible with a culture that encourages diversity.”
