inclusivity as well. Money20/20 will also invite select participants to
serve as ambassadors or speakers for the 2019 program.

bring more women into senior roles.”

programs and participation in the speaker bureau. Rise Up members will
work with Wnet to achieve its overarching mission: to create a stronger
and more diverse industry by empowering and investing in women.

“By raising awareness on the gender imbalance in payments, through
initiatives like Rise Up, Wnet has earned a reputation as the
pre-eminent women in payments organization,” said Carol Grunberg, Wnet
President, Inaugural Rise Up Senior Advisor, and Head of Growth, Global
and Strategic Partnerships,Ant
. “We are pleased to partner with Money20/20 in the ongoing
pursuit of embracing inclusivity as a strategic initiative to drive our
industry forward.”

Rise Up launched at Money20/20 USA this past October, as a new program
complete with a series of bespoke content sessions and exclusive
networking opportunities, such as one-to-one mentoring with the most
respected industry leaders and private sessions with keynote speakers.
The 2018 program hosted an inaugural class of 35 women representative of
our diverse financial ecosystem and included participants from all
seniority levels.

The partnership between Money20/20 and Wnet will take effect
immediately, allowing past participants to register for membership and
take part in association benefits at any time. Alumni events will take
