We sat down with Erick Smith for another episode of our DEI Champion Q&A Series. Erick is the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Senior Manager at Stash, an investing and banking app that helps Americans invest easily.

He works around initiatives that improve and increase FinTech and  Finance industry diversity. Erick believes in bridging the wealth gap across diverse groups by leveraging the power of Financial Technologies.

We asked - Why is DEI so important in the FinTech space?

And Erick didn't hesitate when he jumped in with, "[...] first and foremost, no organization can thrive and succeed without it."

Watch our quick, 3-minute chat with Erick and hear what he had to say about FinTech's power to create a more equitable future for everyone, including the workforce.

And don't forget to join the conversation on LinkedIn. We share DEI + HR news as well as industry conversation starters.
