KUSCCO2019 - A women leadership group affiliated with the World Council of Credit Unions has been launched in the country to champion women’s leadership and gender equality in the co-operative movement. 

The Kenyan chapter of the Global Women Leadership Network (GLWN) seeks to empower women in Kenya to seize leadership positions in the cooperative movement, said Scholastica Odhiambo, its interim chair. 
She said the network is the only international platform dedicated to addressing and facilitating gender balance among leadership positions. 
“The network provides women in the credit union with tangible skills, tools and resources they need to lead and offer actionable steps in organisations,” Odhiambo noted. 
Currently there are 81 chapters of the Global women group, making the Kenyan chapter the 82nd to join the network. In Africa, only Uganda and Malawi have launched such chapters. 
Speaking during the launch at a Nairobi hotel, Odhiambo expressed optimism in the ability of the network to make impact in addressing the gender gap and improving financial savings. 
The interim chair noted that the network, created in 2009, has reached over 1200 women in over 60 countries worldwide. 
According to KUSCCO Group Managing Director George Ototo, the network provides women an opportunity to chart their destiny, adding that KUSCCO group has a vibrant corporate culture on women empowerment. 
He said leadership is about influence, urging women in the cooperative movement to invest in personal branding to seize opportunities to influence others. 

Ototo lauded the efforts of women leaders in the movement, singling out Prof Esther Gicheru, former chair of Shirika Sacco and Ms Anne Ambwere chair of Jamii Sacco. 

He urged women in cooperatives to identity and learn from mentors, and take part in leadership forums to develop short-term and long-term plans to influence others. 
Odhiambo said the network will provide women in the country unlimited access to the network’s international community of credit unions, through in person events and online.
