About Event

To celebrate Women’s History Month, Fintech Is Femme is joining forces with Arta Finance to host a virtual event to inspire you with insights from female leaders driving the change our industry needs.

Join us for an exciting session with Nicole Casperson, the Founder and CEO of Fintech Is Femme, as she interviews Betsy Cohen, Co-Founder and Chair of Cohen Circle; Samita Malik, Chief Insurance Officer of Arta Finance; and Tori Dunlap, founder of Her First $100k, bestselling author, and educator who has helped over four million women negotiate salary, pay off debt, build savings, and invest.

In a series of "hot seat" questions, our speakers will provide valuable insights, dispel myths surrounding women in finance, and inspire you to take ownership of your power as a woman in the fintech industry.

March 19th's virtual event will:

  • ​Uncover the stale myths surrounding women in fintech and how to bust them in 2024

  • ​Share the powerful and inspiring stories of female fintech executives who have shaped our industry

  • Introduce you to new fintech friends in breakout rooms designed to level up your network

  • ​Feature a surprise appearance from a finance influencer whose perspectives will change the way you approach this industry


Not only will we be hosting an event for the community to come together, but we're also providing a unique opportunity to nominate a female trailblazer to speak on a panel with industry luminaries during the event.

Here’s how it works: 

  • Secure your seat by registering

  • Fill out your information

  • Know a trailblazing woman who deserves to have her voice amplified? Nominate her during the registration process for the opportunity to join the speaker faculty.

By submitting your registration and nomination, you’re opening the door for another woman to become a fintech trailblazer with an opportunity to join a prestigious panel of industry luminaries. 


We are thrilled to host this event with Arta Finance, recently awarded Nasdaq’s Fintech Trailblazer of 2024. Arta is making it possible for more people to access high-value financial tech, not just the 1%.

Together, Arta and I will also gift the first 50 registrants a digital swag bag (including a copy of Tori Dunlap's bestselling book, Financial Feminist)!
