BNP Paribas to hire 1,000 more women

French bank BNP Paribas has set a target of hiring 1,000 more women to its technology team by 2024.

The bank said that the new hires will come from a mixture of internal and external sources.

The news comes after the bank launched a dedicated programme, called Women In IT, to attract more women into the sector in 2020.

Isabelle Moirez, human resources director for IT at BNP Paribas, said: “Balanced teams produce more effective solutions that better meet the needs of users in their diversity.”

Research released in November 2021, from think tank findexable, found that only 1.5 per cent of the 1,000 best funded private FinTech firms around the world are founded solely by women and these receive just 1 per cent of total FinTech venture funding.
