Pioneer Beth, who is a Business Development Manager at Pioneer Mutual Credit Union in Barrhead, has won a prestigious scholarship to join the Global Women’s Leadership Network.

Beth will begin her scholarship at this year’s World Credit Union Conference in Singapore.

In 2009, World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) established the Global Women’s Leadership Network to tackle the industry’s gender gap while also leveraging resources to strengthen the economic security of women and their families.

The Global Women’s Leadership Network is dedicated to forcing a balance among leadership positions.

The Network provides an annual scholarship to female leaders within the credit union industry so they may develop new skills, tools and resources to make an impact.

Since 2009, Global Women has awarded 47 scholarships to women from 22 countries.

Scholarships are made possible through funding from annual membership donations and sponsorships, including the generous support of CUNA Mutual Group.

Beth has been awarded a complimentary Network membership and will participate in the 2018 World Credit Union Conference in Singapore on July 14 – 18.

The scholarship is dedicated to advancing women and young leaders worldwide and leverages opportunities presented by the World Credit Union Conference to promote professional development throughout the conference week.

Focusing on professional development, Beth will engage in interactive dialogue sessions, to expand her knowledge and grow business relationships. Featuring internationally renowned keynote speakers, roundtable discussions and breakout sessions on diversity, gender inclusion and growing young leadership, attendees walk away with personal action plans, new skills, and professional resources.
