D&I SERIES – Joe Carella, Professor of Global Strategy & Assistant Dean, Eller College of Management, University of Arizona | Episode 50 (Part 1)

This is episode 50 of the Leaders in Payments podcast and this is the fourth episode in our special series focused on Diversity and Inclusion. 

In this series I will be talking with leaders in the payments industry (and maybe some experts from outside of the industry) about diversity and inclusion. It has been proven that a diverse workforce and diverse management team leads to increased creativity, better decision making, reduced employee turnover and increased profit – as well as many other benefits that we will be talking about. 

This special series is brought to you by the Wnet and Paysafe.

The Wnet or The Women’s Network in Electronic Transactions is celebrating 15 years of helping women achieve greater personal success, influence, and professional parity in the payments industry. Wnet is a not-for-profit organization with a mission of creating a stronger and more diverse industry by empowering and investing in women. Learn how at wnetonline.org.

I’m honored to be joined on this fourth episode of our special series about diversity and inclusion by Joe Carella. In fact, my interview with Joe was so full of incredibly useful information that we decided to break it into to two episodes, so this is the first of two with Joe Carella.
