Sister Societies are local groups of Global Women's Leadership Network members who come together to exchange ideas, impact the local community, and share information with other network members. These meetings are organized several times a year and are usually held in credit union offices. Sister Society meetings are a great opportunity to discuss important issues impacting women leaders in credit unions and to build cooperative projects that can be implemented within the local community. Through the Sister Society initiative, the Network makes a difference locally as well as internationally.
