World Council created the Global Women's Leadership Network (GWLN) in 2009 to provide women access to a global community of credit union leaders dedicated to advising each other and to cultivating the leadership potential of women worldwide. The Network provides members with opportunities to engage with leaders and future leaders, to enhance their awareness of issues and trends impacting the credit union movement, and to improve financial services for women worldwide. Since its inception, the Network has reached over 700 women from 53 countries worldwide. With the support of men and women alike, momentum is strong and our goal is to reach over 1,000 women by 2018. To date, we have raised $890,000. Help us grow to $1 million.
