Global Women's Leadership Forum Set for July 13-14
MADISON, Wis. (4/15/13)--The Global Women's Leadership Network has opened online registration for the fifth annual Global Women's Leadership Forum, an exclusive event for network members, July 13-14, prior to the 2013 World Credit Union Conference in Ottawa, Canada.

"The purpose of the Global Women's Leadership Network is to support women achieving management and leadership positions in the global credit union movement," said Brian Branch, World Council president /CEO. "The Global Women's Leadership Forum provides members the opportunity to network with colleagues from very diverse backgrounds and expertise within and outside the industry. The forum brought together 70 women leaders from around the world at last year's event, and we expect a much larger gathering this year in Ottawa."

Participants at this year's forum will hear from Sheryl WuDunn, the first Asian-American Pulitzer Prize winner and co-author of New York Times best-seller "Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide," which inspired a PBS television series and international women's rights movement.

The Global Women's Leadership Forum, which serves as the Global Women's Leadership Network's flagship event, will also offer several opportunities for members to share ideas and learn from their credit union counterparts around the globe. Educational and international networking events will include:

  • Worldwide Foundation Golf Tournament (July 13, separate fee and registration apply);
  • Global Women's Networking Reception (July 13);
  • Global Women's Leadership Forum Workshop (July 14, members only);
  • International Sister Society Meeting (members only); and
  • Networking Lounge (throughout the conference, members only).
To register for the forum, use the link.

The Global Women's Leadership Network, a World Council of Credit Unions program, is the world's only peer-to-peer credit union women's leadership organization that connects women worldwide to engage in personal and professional growth, international credit union development and peer networking and support.
