The Minnesota Credit Union Women’s Leadership Network is a sister society of the World Council of Credit Unions’ Global Women’s Leadership Network. The vision of the Global Women's Leadership Network is to provide women with the opportunity and resources to make a measurable difference in the lives of each other, in the lives of credit union members and in their communities. WOCCU created and serves as the hub of the network to bring together women from credit union systems around the world.
The Minnesota Credit Union Women’s Leadership Network is a local chapter of the Global Women’s Leadership Network established to further Global Women’s Leadership Network’s global mission by making a local impact. The purpose is to convene Minnesota’s women credit union professionals, discuss credit union issues, exchange ideas, network with neighboring credit union leaders, and share lessons learned with Global Women’s Leadership Network members worldwide.
The Minnesota Credit Union Women’s Leadership Network is chaired by Christine Cordell of Hiway Federal Credit Union.
Who can join? Any person, at any stage in their professional journey, connected to a credit union is welcome to participate in the Sister Society program.
