A New Frontier for Women in Payments
Breaking gender barriers one continent at a time

June 6, 2022—Women in Payments, the global advocate for females in fintech and payments, is holding its first ever in-person LATAM symposium this June in Miami, Florida.

Inspiring New Generations is the conference theme for June 6-7 at the Hilton Miami Downtown. Some of the most highly accomplished female executives in payments and fintech will be sharing professional success stories about the challenges of breaking through in a traditionally male-dominated sector.

“It’s an exciting time in the payments industry when you look at what’s happening in Latin America,” says Kristy Duncan, Founder and CEO, Women in Payments. “Millions of new customers have taken to shopping and banking online in Latin America. This is creating significant growth in the payments industry. It made sense for us to extend our network of support to our Latin American colleagues, to share what we’ve learned by helping women in Europe, Asia and North America for the last 10 years.”

The two-day conference will cover a variety of topics including the progression of ESG in Latin America and the innovation that has been taking hold of the sector over the last few years. “We’ve been supporting payments clients across Latin America for more than 100 years. It’s exciting to see Women in Payments expand their reach to the region as fintechs and traditional banks like J.P. Morgan continue to grow and build digital-first solutions for clients,” said Alison Livesey, Managing Director, Global Head of Financial Institutions Sales Strategy & Business Development at J.P. Morgan.”

“As the payments ecosystem continues to experience incredible growth in Latin America, it also opens opportunities to promote financial inclusion” added Gabriel Kirestian, Head of Payments and Receivables, Latin America, TTS, Citi. “We aim at leveraging our solutions, platforms and partnerships to transform and modernize the financial services sector across Latin America and address pressing issues such as socioeconomic inequality and climate change.”

The conference takes place on June 6-7, 2022 at the Hilton Miami Downtown.
