Anne is not only challenging the legacy banks, she is a pioneer of gender equality in the financial services industry. Starling has signed the Women in Finance Charter and launched their #MakeMoneyEqual campaign on International Women’s Day 2018. The campaign released their research exposing the discrepancies in the way that the media talks to men and women about money. “Money is genderless – and if we want to achieve parity and equality for the sexes, we need to speak the same way to everyone about money,” says Anne.
She says: “We’re always happy to hear of initiatives like Girls Friendly Society which provide so much insight and inspiration for young women to build their career aspirations.”
