Global Women's Leadership Forum

2014 Leadership Forum

The 2014 Global Women's Leadership Forum will take place July 26-27 (with additional activities from July 28-30), during the World Credit Union Conference in Gold Coast, Australia. Held in partnership with Australian Women in Mutuals (WIM), this all-day workshop will connect credit union women during an interactive leadership development session. This year's event will feature Dr. Louise Mahler, renowned expert on vocal intelligence, as the keynote speaker, and will include a working luncheon and global dialogue during roundtable discussions. In 2013, more than 100 high-level female leaders from around the world participated in the Leadership Forum. The 2014 Forum is open to Network members, including Australian and New Zealand women leaders. Thanks to our sponsors, this year's registration is only US $100 (+10% GST) for women from developed credit union movements. Women from developing credit union movements are able to attend for free.

Social Media at the 2014 Leadership Forum

We are excited to announce that we will be hosting two social media activities throughout the week of the 2014 World Credit Union Conference in Gold Coast, Australia. Members who participate will be awarded Leadership Reward Point prizes and their photos will be featured on the Network's social media accounts. The two activities are:

1. ‪#‎CUselfie‬: Winner receives 75 Leadership Points
Grab your smartphone, a colleague or new friend and pull up your Twitter account because this year we're all about staying connected! The Network member who takes the most "selfies" using #CUselfie in their posts on Twitter will receive 75 Leadership Reward Points, equivalent to US$75.00. Let the selfies begin!

2. ‪#‎CUwomen‬: Participants receive 20 Leadership Points
Tell us about your experience with the Network and create your own #CUwomen sign between Sunday, July 27th and Tuesday, July 29th in the Network Lounge. Photos of members holding their original signs will be promoted on the Network's social media accounts and may be used in future marketing materials to help advance credit union women in leadership worldwide!

Thank you to this year's generous sponsors for making the Forum possible:
