Women’s History Month celebrates the contributions of women to our culture, history, workplace, and society. This month, we at ETA and in the ETA Network have been reflecting on the increasingly pivotal role women play in supporting the payments ecosystem at all levels and the continued potential for growth in diversity, equality, and inclusion. In honor of Women’s History Month, ETA has reached out to a few member companies to explore the positive changes they are seeing in the industry regarding gender equality, to explain how they are supporting these initiatives, and to discuss why they are important.
