NEW TECHNOLOGY: BLOCKCHAIN EXECUTIVE KAHINA VAN DYKE ADVOCATES FOR MORE BLACK WOMEN TO ENTER THE FINTECH SPACE
Unsurprisingly, the financial services and tech industries are grossly lacking when it comes to diversity. Yet, that didn’t stop Kahina Van Dyke from taking a unique career pathway to becoming one of the few Black women senior leaders in Silicon Valley.
Van Dyke spent the early part of her career holding global executive roles at MasterCard and Citibank. Her “20 years in traditional companies doing nontraditional things” led her to be recruited by Facebook to lead the Global Financial Services team and build the global payments partnerships team.
