The FinTech For All Charter is an industry-led initiative to end harassment and promote diversity within the FinTech sector. The Charter is a commitment to increase diversity and inclusion across the sector, and PwC is delighted to be one of the founding signatory organisations.
The Charter has been led by InChorus and supported by Innovate Finance, the FinTech Alliance, and Level39, with the Financial Conduct Authority supporting the steering committee. The need for the Charter became clear after InChorus carried out a survey and revealed high levels of workplace harassment in UK FinTech.
