Who is shaping the emerging money system?
Updated: Aug 30, 2021
Women’s voices were not a part of the design of the traditional financial system and were excluded from leadership until only recently. In a time of crisis, we’re now seeing the rise of women into powerful and influential roles in finance. Only this year, Secretary Yellen became the first woman to serve as U.S. secretary of treasury and Jane Fraser became the first woman to lead a major Wall Street bank as CEO of Citibank.
While I celebrate all female finance pioneers and their achievements in the industry, I’m paying closer attention to who is shaping what’s emerging in rebellion to the legacy system designed by and for men (legacy referring to the financial and monetary system we live in today). The legacy system is being disrupted like never before.
There’s no question that we’re in the midst of a paradigm shift to a new system of money. In this digital age, what money looks like, how we do business, and how we create wealth is being questioned and discussed openly. Digital assets are all over the news and the subject of curious dinner table conversation from cryptocurrency to security tokens to non-fungible tokens (NFTs)…while it’s all so new and people are figuring out what exactly they are talking about, it’s all on the table!
