I just wanted to take a minute to thank the whole team at The Green Sheet for such a great article done on Fusion. The response since that issue came out has been incredible from ISOs and other companies looking to partner with us. The way the article was written was perfect and really expressed the culture of Fusion, which is very important and made us stand out from the rest of the companies in our industry. Once again, job well done. We look forward to working with The Green Sheet in the near future.

As this year's president of Women's Network in Electronic Transactions (W.net), my top priority is to begin the process of driving parity for women in our industry. The gender gap and glass ceiling have not seen significant improvement in recent years, and remain a reality today for women in the payments industry and beyond. Working women continue to face disparity in pay, as well as exclusion from new opportunities, networking, mentorship, business deals and other activities that open the door for career development and promotion all the way to the executive suite.
Here are some interesting facts about the U.S. workplace:
And here are some statistics about our own payments industry:
So I challenge all of you to make parity for women in payments a priority for your organization. Although the task may seem daunting, an easy way to begin is by offering W.net membership to women at all levels in your organization. You might also want to take advantage of custom programming W.net can bring directly to your company and utilize our job-posting board to attract more women to your organization. I want to know your opinions and ideas on what can be done to help drive parity for women in payments, too. Simply submit your thoughts to "Readers Speak" here at The Green Sheet. I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon.
