deverium co-founder and CEO Erika Maslauskaite, who is also a Board Member of Fintech Hub LT, has been recognized for her role in fostering the growth of the Fintech community, illustrating significant progress towards gender equality in Lithuania’s financial technology sector. Alongside other accomplished women like Head of Fintech Hub LT Vaiva Amule and the first Lithuanian ambassador in the European Women Payments Network Asta Grigaityte, Erika’s leadership sets a powerful example. Their achievements, celebrated at the Lithuanian Fintech Awards and in roles within the European Women Payments Network, are pivotal in driving increased female representation and empowerment across fintech.
The number of women leaders in various industries, including fintech and IT, although growing, remain scarce. With fewer female managers in leadership positions, women are less likely to apply for C-level positions. But despite some progress, the gender pay gap remains a significant issue most pronounced in financial and insurance companies, including those of the fintech sector.
The recognition of the groundbreaking work of Erika Maslauskaite and her colleagues signifies positive developments for the industry, bolstered by a commitment to fostering diversity and equal opportunities. Gender diversity and inclusion should be a top priority for various companies in Europe and beyond. Companies with diverse workforces tend to perform better, are more innovative, and have higher employee satisfaction rates.
