Lander & Rogers shows its support for diversity and innovation at the inaugural Lift Off Awards
The inaugural Lift Off Awards form part of the YBF Ventures 'Lift Off' program, which was designed in partnership with the Victorian State Government. The Lift Off Awards celebrate diversity in Fintech — women, cultural minorities, and individuals and companies making a positive impact through diversity across the global fintech ecosystem.
The Awards are being hosted by YBF Ventures, a community of diverse entrepreneurs and subject matter experts who have created hundreds of disrupted technologies, and is focused on advancing Australia’s technology-focused innovation ecosystem.
Lander & Rogers will be presenting the awards for Diversity in Fintech Innovator of the Year and Diversity in Fintech Student Leader of the Year.
Lander & Rogers' Chief Executive Partner, Genevieve Collins, is on the judging panel for the Awards, which take place on 1 November.

We believe that it's not enough to create new services and call them 'innovation' — we are focused on solving real problems that make our clients' lives easier and give them an edge in their industries.
"Fostering a diverse and inclusive working environment is a key focus for Lander & Rogers. The firm is consistently ranked highly for the number of women in the partnership, senior leadership team, and our Board — but the work does not stop there.
