NYC Fintech Women Ring Closing Bell
NYC Fintech Women rang the closing bell at the Nasdaq exchange with a speech by founder Michelle Tran. Photos of the members could be seen on the big Nasdaq board in Times Square.
“I’m so proud to be standing with the team as we ring the closing bell for NYC Fintech Women and all women in FinTech! I started NYC FinTech Women 3 years ago to build a community of strong female FinTech leaders and male allies to support each other in our professional advancement in FinTech,” Tran said before the event. “I absolutely LOVE hearing the stories of how this community has helped with stories of women finding new roles, getting promoted, getting more pay, and finding their own personal board.”
The organization said the bell was rung on behalf of all women in fintech and promoted an upcoming international women’s day event featuring Nasdaq and the UN on March 8th.
The 5,000 member strong organization was founded in 2017 to provide members of any gender with opportunity and connection.
