Kristy Duncan
Founder & CEO at Women In Payments


Kristy Duncan is the founder and CEO of Women in Payments. This growing professional network unites women in payments from around the globe with a shared vision of gender parity. Women in Payments supports women’s career development through conferences, awards, leadership and mentorship programs, and by hosting a growing online community. Kristy is an avid supporter of her fellow female trailblazers, as investor and advisor to a number of women-led fintechs. As a respected leader in the field, she’s judged several accelerators, fintech contests, and global awards programs.

Before founding Women in Payments, Kristy was a leading payments consultant to global financial institutions, payment networks, fintechs, regulators, and other industry leaders. Prior to that, she held leadership positions at a tier one Canadian bank.

Always inspiring and insightful, Kristy is a sought-after speaker, advisor, and mentor. Innovate Finance named Kristy to their Women in Fintech Power List in 2018 and 2017, and to the Standout 35 list in 2019. Lattice 80 named her to their Global 100 Power Women in Fintech List twice. Perhaps her greatest pride comes from inspiring the next generation of female leaders, as she mentors women at all career levels around the world.

Kristy holds a Bachelor of Applied Science and Engineering from the University of Toronto, and a Certified Cash Manager designation.
