Why FITSPA Women

The State of Uganda's Fintech Industry report has revealed a significant gender gap. While most fintech companies employ over 50% women, they account for only 35% of the talent workforce, particularly at managerial levels and in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. This data reflects the persistent industry challenge in attracting and retaining women, despite their increasing representation within tech organizations.

At FITSPA Women, we are committed to bridging this gap and creating a transformative environment for women in fintech. We firmly believe in empowering and supporting women's personal and professional lives. By joining our community, you become part of a movement actively addressing these issues and fostering women's empowerment.
