I decided in light of all the recent events to share a couple of thoughts about the startling lack of diversity in fintech (and financial regulation more generally).  A couple of the dismal highlights:  Only eight African Americans have ever served on a financial regulatory agency since the New Deal: Mel Watts, Andrew Brimmer, Emmett John Rice, Frank Savage, Aulana Peters, Sharon Bowen, Rodney Hood, and Roger Ferguson. Make it Nine if you count Mozelle Thompson’s service on the Federal Trade Commission.
