Meet the STARs of Sibos 2020

The Sibos Talent Accelerator Route (STAR) scholarship is back for Sibos 2020, empowering the female leaders of tomorrow with a special programme uniting women in finance from around the world.

The scholarship provides women who are rising stars within their organisations with growth opportunities to support their progress to senior levels, while accelerating their knowledge and professional connections.

A global initiative

This year 21 women are taking part in the programme from countries including the US, Germany, the UK, France, Belgium, Canada, Singapore, Lebanon, UAE, Austria, South Africa, Hong Kong, Turkey, Poland, Thailand and Malaysia.

The STAR scholars are benefiting from privileged access to the conference programme and exclusive facilitated networking and mentoring activities with senior financial and technology industry figures.

They will be closely involved with the new monthly Sibos sessions that run on the second Tuesday of each month, starting on 10 November 2020.
