Global Womens network inaugural forum set
MADISON, Wis. (6/8/09)--Credit unions worldwide are stepping forward to support the Global Women's Leadership Network, launched earlier this year by the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) and the Co-operative Development Foundation of Canada (CDF). The network aims to enable women credit union leaders to connect, communicate and seek confidential advice from their peers around the world. WOCCU and CDF are raising funds for the network to provide women in developed and developing countries with credit union resources to lead economic growth in their communities. Leaders who join the network also will gain access to the peer advisory group online and receive periodic updates on relevant credit union issues for women. Funds raised through the network will allow women credit union CEOs from 10 developing countries to participate in the first Global Women's Leadership Forum, the network's inaugural gathering. The forum will be offered in conjunction with WOCCU's World Credit Union Conference in Barcelona, Spain, July 26-29. To date, women leaders from Afghanistan, Belarus, Colombia, Ecuador, India, Kenya, Macedonia, Mexico, the Philippines and Sri Lanka will join the forum there. Participation in the forum is by invitation only. The forum is designed to tap the leadership experience of women who are credit union CEOs and executive team members, retired credit union executives, credit union volunteers and executives of credit union partner organizations. However, any individual contributing $250 or more to support women's leadership development through credit unions in developing countries automatically becomes a network member. For a list of network members, use the link.
