WOCCU Accepts Registrations for 2013 Global Women’s Leadership Forum
Wednesday, April 17, 2013 3:10 AM

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. Registration for both the network and the forum are now available at

"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 and 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. She will present research from her book, as well as participate in a panel discussion centered on economic empowerment.
