This year we hosted our first ever Women in Fintech Dinner as part of our commitment to fostering connections and empowering women in the fintech industry. This event was held at the 5Church restaurant in Midtown Atlanta. This exclusive event brought together the remarkable women attending LEND360 for an evening of inspiration, collaboration, and networking. We carefully curated an unforgettable program. Including a keynote speech from emmy award-winning filmmaker Sarah Moshman.
We also created the Women in Fintech Lounge. An open space for women to reconnect during the LEND360 Conference. There was a lot going on at the Women in Fintech Lounge. A Book Nook where attendees shared books that inspired them. Complimentary headshots from a woman-owned photography company. Desserts from a woman-owned bakery in Georgia. And a storyboard for collaboration and sharing inspiration.
