Female credit union professionals in mid- to high-tiered positions are invited to apply to participate in the Global Women’s Leadership Network’s Executive Readiness Summit, to be held in Chicago Nov. 13 to 15. Interested individuals have until Aug. 31 to submit applications.
The summit is designed to promote the advancement of women by focusing on the U.S. industry’s “pipeline” problem. While many credit unions have succession planning or targeted leadership strategies, few focus on developing mid-tier ranks where people often need information and the most support.
Cultivating the leadership potential of up-and-coming talent can shorten developmental milestones and expedite top performers’ readiness for advancement.
This unique platform, dedicated to credit union women only, will focus on critical competencies, networking and expanding knowledge, helping to increase the number of women in the “ready-now” or “ready-soon” pool.
Prior to the summit, participants will receive a self-assessment tool and asked to evaluate their strengths, weaknesses and development areas.
Workshop activities will address the assessment’s needs by offering hands-on assistance through professional training, knowledge sharing and skill-building activities.
The Global Women’s Leadership Network is an international credit union industry platform dedication to addressing and facilitating gender balance among leadership positions.
The summit is sponsored by CUNA, CUES, PSCU, the Illinois Credit Union League, Numerica CU, Spokane Valley, Wash. and CUNA Mutual.
