Women in Payments Announces J.P. Morgan as Global Platinum Sponsor for 2022-24
March 9, 2022 (Toronto, Canada): Women in Payments (WIP), a global community for women in the payments and fintech industry, is thrilled to announce today an expansion of J.P. Morgan’s global sponsorship. The global leader in financial services has signed on to a three-year platinum sponsorship of the organization, marking the largest commitment in Women in Payments’ history.
J.P. Morgan has been a strong supporter of Women in Payments in Canada since 2014, and in the US since 2017, where it also played a role on the Women in Payments US Awards Committee. J.P. Morgan then became a Global Sponsor in 2020 and this three-year Global Platinum Sponsorship marks an evolution of the relationship.
The Women in Payments community has benefited from the support of female J.P. Morgan leaders, who have invested time in the organization’s Global Mentorship Program, as well as shared their experience and perspectives as speakers at various annual symposia.
“As an organization that connects, inspires, and champions women across the global payments and fintech industry, working with Women in Payments has been a great fit for J.P. Morgan over the past seven years. Our community of women globally has valued the speakers, mentors and industry insights that have come from our sponsorship. We look forward to continuing to work together to bring women to the forefront of the payment industry over the next three years,” said Kristy Duncan, CEO and Founder of Women in Payments.
This sponsorship builds on J.P. Morgan’s commitment to provide women with opportunities to succeed in their professional and personal lives, Women on the Move. The program’s key objectives are to expand women-run businesses, improve women’s financial health and advance women’s career growth with an overall goal of helping secure an equal future for employees, clients, consumers, and communities.
Alison Livesey, Managing Director in Payments, J.P. Morgan: “The payments space has seen phenomenal growth in recent years and there’s tremendous amounts of innovation underway. Being part of a forum like Women in Payments is important to us – it brings us together with individuals and organizations driving change, as payments increasingly connect the physical and digital economies.”
The Women in Payment initiative enjoys engagement and support from global leaders in payments and fintech, including J.P. Morgan, Citi, Western Union, American Express, Visa, Mastercard, Worldline, PayPal, Deloitte, RBC, TD Bank, CIBC, ANZ, and Standard Chartered.
