DLAI is proud to announce "Women in Fintech" Awards co-sponsored by Kapitaltech to honour women in the fintech world and we would like to invite nominations for the same.This would be part of the DLAI Conclave 2019.

DLAI Women in Fintech Award,is a formal recognition to recognise women in the fintech world, who have demonstrated excellence in the workplace.

A little about the competition. The awards have been set up to celebrate and acknowledge current and future women leaders, who exhibit the spirit of entrepreneurship, innovation, and excellence and we hope to make it an annual affair. According to the World Bank Group, several studies have held that gender diversity in the boardroom leads to more efficiently and effectively run organizations, a reduced exposure to risks of corruption and fraud and, importantly, improved profit margins and return on equity.DLAI firmly believes in this ethos, and keeping the same in mind, we have in association with Kapitattech introduced the Women in Fitech Award.
