At this year’s FinovateSpring in San Francisco, our CEO William Mills interviewed some of fintech’s top professionals to examine the latest technology and advancements in the industry. William sits down with Kathy Strasser, COO and CIO of IncredibleBank, to discuss her power panel on the importance of diversity in financial services, the bank’s shifting strategy and more.
Highlights from this interview include:
- Strasser’s unique perspective from working on both the fintech and banking sides in the financial services industry.
- The goal of the power panel, which she shared was, “To leave the audience with more inspirational things to take away versus talking about the problems with diversity and inclusion.”
- When asked what’s driving the change in diversity and inclusion efforts, Strasser said, “We can say a lot about the pandemic, but it has shifted the hearts and minds of people.”
- A discussion around what community banks need to prioritize in order to stay successful with customers in the future.
