How FinTech & Data Increase Opportunities For Women – Shamina Singh, Mastercard Center For Inclusive Growth

“Data Philanthropy” Innovation That Powers Our Daily Lives

“There are networks that power the modern economy. They can be financial networks…social networks, energy networks, transportation networks…You have to be connected up into these networks in order to realize your full potential.” Shamina Singh on Electric Ladies Podcast (then known as Green Connections Radio)

But 1.7 billion people are not connected to these networks, and most of them are women, according to Shamina Singh, President of the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth.

Listen to this fascinating and inspiring interview with host Joan Michelson about leveraging and partnering with NGO’s and nonprofits to address this “poverty of access.”

You’ll hear:

“You’ve got to have representative views at the table, otherwise you’re missing something. How do you have true innovation if you’re missing something?” Shamina Singh on Green Connections Radio
