What’s the Goal?
DFI and Omidyar want to promote DFI’s Digital Identity online certification course to allow more people to enter this space and continue to push the financial inclusion agenda. As well as continuing to close the gender gap in the sector. Fintech companies continue to grapple with an underrepresentation of women in leadership roles. This, according to a report by the Digital Frontiers Institute (DFI) in which findings revealed that among the 400 respondents, only 12.5 percent of those in leadership roles are women. To close the gender gap in the rapidly expanding digital identity sector preference will be given to female applicants.
The Digital Identity Scholarship is open to everyone, 18 years and older. Preference will be given to women who are currently working in the digital finance industry and who have a proven track record in implementing solutions to promote financial inclusion and gender equality through digital finance. Digital Frontiers Institute and Omidyar Network will review all applicants and communicate their decision by the 15th of August 2020.
