As part of our FinTech Forum event series, Adam Smith Business School was delighted to host a roundtable focusing on equality, diversity, and inclusivity in the FinTech sector.

This event was convened by Dr Helen Mullen, Coordinator of the MSc Financial Technology Pathways Projects and brought together representatives from industry and academia who shared their insights on supporting access to the FinTech sector, and the role that skills can play in this. During this session we considered:

  1. What are the equality, diversity and inclusivity issues in the FinTech sector in Scotland?
  2. What skills-related measures can we take to support equality, diversity and inclusivity?
  3. How can academia and industry collaborate to address equality, diversity and inclusivity?

Our guest speakers below were welcomed by Professor John Finch, Head of Adam Smith Business School, and the roundtable was hosted and led by Dr Dominic Chalmers, senior lecturer in Entrepreneurship and Innovation and Programme Manager for the MSc Financial Technology.
