Country manager for Fiserv Poland, Aleksandra Gren, discusses her work to democratize the financial system and why diversifying the pipeline for tech talent is a key factor for stimulating economic growth.
On the importance of bringing diversity to tech talent: “We’re looking at a hugely productive talent pool. From a leadership point of view and from the economy’s stand point, not to tap into that talent is just crazy, at the time when the economies need more talent, especially tech-educated talent because the world is changing. You cannot have a sustainable growth projection for any given economy if you don’t have access to tech talent.”
On promoting financial literacy: “The whole aspect of creating more awareness and accessibility for women in the investment area, but also in general in money matters so that the subject is not a taboo anymore -- it is something we invest in a lot, in terms of programs and empowerment.”
