Eastern Washington Sister Society

The Global Women’s Leadership Network is the credit union industry’s only international platform designed to facilitate greater gender equality in credit unions, including increasing the number of women in leadership positions. To advance this mission on a local level, Sister Societies of the GWLN have been established around the world. Last fall marked the launch of the first group of Sister Societies in our region: The Northwest Chapter of Sister Societies.

The Northwest Chapter is now part of a network of 44 Chapters across 16 countries, founded to encourage, prepare, promote, and develop women for credit union executive leadership roles.
