The Women in PayTech Award

in partnership with



The Women in PayTech award, in partnership with Visa, celebrates the rising stars of the payments industry. With this award we want to acknowledge and celebrate women who have made a significant impact in their workplace and the industry more widely. Let’s celebrate those who, through their efforts, are helping to challenge stereotypes, drive equality in financial services, and taking steps towards breaking the ‘glass ceiling’.

As a benefactor of the Emerging Payments Association, Visa has chosen to support the Women in PayTech project, enabling those of all genders to engage with the ‘gender agenda’ and provide mentorship and support for women in financial services. This year, we have the honour of presenting the award of ‘Outstanding Women in PayTech’. At Visa we aim to provide a nurturing environment for those who aspire to grow and develop their careers within the payments industry. This award is especially important to us as we seek to promote the outstanding women in our industry and drive towards greater empowerment and equality.
