Empowering Women in Payments

Celebrate our Anniversary!

Wnet Founders Linda Perry, Holli Targan,
and Diane Faro at 2015 SuperLINC

For 15 years, Women's Network in Electronic Transactions (Wnet) has stood by our mission: To create a stronger and more diverse industry by empowering and investing in women.

Wnet was incorporated in late December of 2005 and began serving our members – professional women in the payments industry – in January of 2006.

We support each other because more women leaders is better for business, and better for the world.

HELP US CELEBRATE! Send your old photos, company logos, and thoughts to info@wnetonline.org. We will commemorate our 15th Anniversary throughout 2021 and will celebrate with you in person at our Wnet Annual Leadership Summit in the fall!

Thank You for Joining Our Global Virtual Event!

“UNDOING 50 YEARS OF PROGRESS: The Impact of Covid-19 on Gender Equality”

We were honored to have Ann Cairns, Executive Vice Chair, Mastercard, share her perspective about the impact of COVID-19 on gender equality. Ann’s strategies for influencing a post-pandemic business environment that supports equality and diversity are important initiatives to help lessen the gender wealth gap.

We hope you took advantage of networking and sharing in the breakout sessions. Thank you to our global payment and FinTech leaders who moderated those discussions!.

We are paying close attention to developments with the novel coronavirus and we've compiled a number of resources to help you navigate the "new normal" on our COVID-19 Resource Page. We appreciate your flexibility and support during this time. Our thoughts remain with everyone affected by COVID-19.
