Global Women's Leadership Forum

Thank you for joining us at the World Credit Union Conference in Denver, Colorado. We had gorgeous weather for our annual fundraiser at the Arrowhead Golf Course on Saturday, as well as the Networking Reception that evening at the Hyatt Regency hotel where we announced our 2015 Athena Award winners. Congratulations Marquetta White and Lois Kitsch!

Sunday's Leadership Forum was a full house with 160 women from 24 countries in attendance! Keynote speaker Ingrid Vanderveldt, CEO of Empowering a Billion Women by 2020, shared her personal story with us and gave us tips on how to succeed as female leaders. In the afternoon we worked with facilitator Courtney Price on our Personal Action Plan Development, which involved three rounds of breakout sessions led by Network members who are experts in various areas of professional development that attendees wanted to improve on.

Throughout the week, members then had the opportunity to meet with Courtney individually in the Networking Lounge to work on their Personal Action Development plan in more detail. Also hosted in the Networking Lounge were the 2014 Empowerment Grant project updates, 2015 Empowerment Grant Project proposals, a White Paper Discussion, and our International Sister Society Workshop.

We hope you enjoyed these events and the opportunity to network with female leaders in the industry. We appreciate your feedback via our 2015 Forum Survey and look forward to seeing you next year in Belfast, Ireland.

Thanks again,

The Global Women’s Leadership Network
