Shortlist revealed: Women in Credit Awards

Finalists for the Women in Credit Awards - the first event in Credit Strategy’s new initiative to tackle gender diversity issues - have been revealed.

The awards programme, hosted on March 15 during Credit Week, has a noble aim to highlight some of the excellent work and achievements of women in the credit industry.


Hosting the awards will be Crista Cullen MBE, an Olympic gold medal winning English field hockey player.


The panel of judges that faced the challenge of reviewing the shortlist and picking out the winners for each category included:

  • Fiona Hoyle, head of mortgages and consumer finance at the FLA;
  • Jennifer Baldwin, head of collections strategy at NewDay;
  • Tasneem Bhamji, director of transformation at Lloyds Banking Group;
  • Doriana Iovino, director of credit risk and analytics at Metro Bank;
  • Maria Harris, director of retail mortgages of Atom Bank.

The full shortlist can be found here.


As well as helping to decide the winners of the first Women in Credit Awards, the steering committee for this new platform will steer the direction of this new platform for debate, research and we hope, industry change.


During Credit Week, we will also host a debate at the Credit Summit to discuss how women are faring in credit, where there are particular issues of concern and what we can do to improve our lot.


Credit Strategy has additional plans to develop the Women in Credit brand into a series of networking events to help women build more contacts to achieve their aims and a mentoring group to do likewise.


Kamala Panday, Credit Strategy’s publishing director, who started this initiative, said: “More women work in the financial services sector than men. So there’s a problem. The gender dial in financial services at senior levels has not moved much. This matters for the economy as financial services – the biggest component of job functions within credit – is our highest paid sector, with the widest gender pay gap.”


Sponsors on the night include Hitachi Capital and Telrock.
