Global Women’s Leadership Network GB Sister Society Gathers in Bolton

On Wednesday 07 February, members of the GB Sister Society of the Global Women’s Leadership Network (GWLN) gathered in Bolton, hosted by Hoot Credit Union, to participate in expert training on how to boost resilience and within their credit unions.

The Committee invited Kerry McKevitt, Chief Executive at PNM People, to deliver the first of two sessions on building women’s resilience via Zoom in November 2023.

The session revised topics that were familiar to attendees of the first session and built on how to build their own resilience, as well as the wider team in organisations.

“It was great to see such a diverse group of women talk about mutual challenges, and how building resilience can help support their credit union journeys” said Chris Canham, GWLN Committee Member and Community Engagement Manager at Hoot Credit Union.

“It was a delight to present to the GWLN this week” said Kerry, “Building resilience to achieve our professional goals effectively is more important than ever. The group met to develop our personal ‘toolkits’ and explore how we can use these with our colleagues and wider teams.”

Kerry added “It’s vital that we come together to support, advocate for and empower each other and GWLN provides a superb forum for us to do this”.

Chris added: “I loved the opportunity to discuss a wide range of things in a safe and welcoming environment”
