Hello and welcome to Finance Monthly’s June 2019 edition!
The eagle-eyed amongst you may notice that our contents page this month looks different and that we’ve introduced two new sections. At Finance Monthly, we have always been interested in covering financial innovation and FinTech, as well as topical discussions and current affairs within the world of finance, but as of this month, we have decided to start focusing a portion of our content on two additional themes that we’re very passionate about – Women in Finance & Finance Careers.
For our front-cover story this month, we had the privilege to interview Karen Penney, Vice President of UK Payments at Western Union. As a keen advocate for women in the workplace, Karen tells us about her own experiences and hurdles and offers advice on how women can make it to the top in the finance sector. We also spoke with HR & Business Consultant Sue Andrews who discusses the gender pay gap in the finance sector and the changes that need to be made.
We have a number of interesting articles in our Finance Careers section too – from tips on how to prepare for an interview and how to make it in the finance industry, through to an article on mental health in the workplace and a piece on the imposter syndrome.
All of this and so much more – I hope you enjoy the slight shift in content we’re introducing!
