CMC Markets to co-sponsor 2021 Women in Finance festival

As part of our ongoing commitment to being an inclusive employer, as well as ensuring we can best support our female staff as they look to develop their fintech careers, CMC Markets has this week embraced the opportunity to participate in the 2021 Women in Finance festival. With the global pandemic having undeniably shifted the landscape for many businesses, finance is no exception and as markets move to leverage from the ‘recovery’ phase, further fintech innovation is inevitable.

As a business, we want to ensure that our staff are always best positioned to harness the latest opportunities, so are delighted to offer our support for the event. To be held from February 23rd to 25th, it will allow CMC Markets staff to attend the online festival free of charge. Inspiring keynote speeches, interactive workshops and an array of networking opportunities will be offered across the three days. Organisers have told us that delegates will have the opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals and further develop their skill sets to become part of a truly global movement.

CMC Markets takes pride in its commitment to recruiting, developing, retaining and motivating exceptional people who are talented, innovative and focused on delivering excellence. Our support for the Women in Finance festival is just one example of how we are looking to assist not only our own staff but also the wider community when it comes to making fintech a sector of truly equal opportunities.

To further this drive for inclusivity, we plan to embark on a series of initiatives throughout the year, starting with our own virtual roundtable on March 11th, 2021. Covering the subject of Blockchain and the Future of Digital Settlements, the event has been timed to coincide with International Women’s Day. It will see an all-female panel of industry experts convened to discuss this highly topical subject, who will then each lead a series of break-out sessions. Attendance is limited but all staff, suppliers and partners of CMC are welcome to request a space. Contact Camilla Boldracchi: [email protected] for further details or to register.
