Take Action for
Black Equity in Finance
Why We’re Here
Overcoming racial injustice requires actions, not words. Fintech in Action (FIA) was created to be a powerhouse resource to accelerate progress, innovation, and opportunities for Black students and professionals across fintech and ancillary industries.
What We Do
FIA is a social impact initiative that harnesses strategic partnerships with action-oriented corporations and community groups. These organizations work together to equip the next generation of Black talent with a higher level of financial prowess and access to fintech careers.
How We Do It
FIA focuses on exposure, education, and access to cultivate a pipeline of highly prepared Black students and professionals to join the finance and fintech industries. FIA also uses innovative resources to increase financial literacy and build stronger financial futures for the broader community
Our Family in Action
This is just the beginning. FIA is formulating new strategic partnerships with action-oriented corporations and community organizations. These partnerships allow for active collaboration on new innovative programs and initiatives.
Since 2020, over $1.7M has been invested towards paid fintech internships, in-office intensives, mentoring opportunities, and educational programming.
Community and university partnerships allow FIA to increase both high school and college students’ exposure to various fintech career paths and provide hands-on experience.
FINTECH IN ACTION seeks to increase the pipeline of Black professionals for careers in finance and fintech. We effect long-term change through equitable hiring, promotion, and retention of talent.
