Women are controlling upwards of 80% of consumer spending, 60% of the nation's wealth, and 44% are their households primary breadwinners. But when you look inside the number of women represented in FinTech companies (the companies creating the technology and programming to support banking and financial services) women make up a mere 37%.

Join Leigh Blechman, a Fullstack Developer at Alloy who's making waves at her organization, for a virtual Q&A to discuss how you can help diversify the FinTech space, and join an inclusive organization like Alloy!
