Maintaining the Ultimate Work/Life Balance in the Wake of a Global Pandemic

Genevieve Dozier, Fiserv, Michelle Beyo, Finavator INC, 10/27 1:55PM-2:30PM

The only thing constant is change. From your first job, relationships, perhaps starting your own business to external forces such as COVID-19, shifting government regulation or consumer behavior – it’s everywhere, all the time. During coronavirus, many of these changes have collided, impacting women in business in particular. How do you experience fulfillment whilst creating a legacy (and juggling more work/life pressures than ever)? This session will outline best practices and real world examples on how you can continue to expand your knowledge and network – and still rise up.


The End of “Alternative” in Alternative Data”

Melissa Koide, FinRegLab, Nicky Goulimis, Nova Credit, 10/28 1:40PM-2:05PM

Traditional datasets deployed by banks and lenders in the U.S. have historically reinforced inequality and perpetuated the exclusion of much of the population from the U.S. financial system. But now, datasets that were traditionally considered “alternative” are being used to make decisions on applicants who would have previously been ostracised from the financial system. Learn how banks and lenders are leveraging harmonised data sources from international credit, bank transactions and employment/income verification to break down the barriers of domestic credit data, for a fuller picture of a consumer’s financial health.
