We Rise By Lifting Others
Late July, we convened during the World Credit Union Conference and brought together 120 men and women from 22 countries for the shared purpose of advancing credit unions and changing lives.
Global Women's Annual Forum provided a unique opportunity to be innovative and offered a space to address not only women’s leadership advancement, but "leadership" as a skill that we can all cultivate to lift one another up and make our workplaces, homes, and communities better. The energy, connections, and strategies shared on this day will indeed lead to a global ripple effect.
With your support, Global Women was presented with the industry's highest honor, the Distinguished Service Award, for great contribution to the global credit union industry. It was an honor to accept this incredible award on behalf of our 2,000 members from 78 countries and together we are truly changing lives and making a measurable difference in the lives of women.
After the conference, a delegation of 20 credit union leaders volunteered their technical expertise to support World Council's Credit for Agriculture Producers project in Ukraine working with local associations, regulators, business partners and credit union leaders to strengthen collaboration and capacity of credit unions in Ukraine.
