In her work with the Masters in Management of Cooperatives and Credit Unions program at St. Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Erin Hancock had the opportunity to teach and work with communities in Africa looking to build stronger communities through cooperation. In this video Erin shares one particularly compelling story of a woman she met who demonstrated immense courage in her leadership, in the face of much doubt and scorn. Erin even shares her own experiences being a woman in leadership and how, even in North America, women still face more scrutiny than their male counterparts.

About the Cooperative Cafe
Co-op directors and their managers are often seeking meaningful ways to tackle questions about the future, build alignment, and take steps toward realizing the goals and vision of their cooperative. A direct path to meeting this objective is for boards, along with their general manager, to participate together in the Cooperative Cafes offered through the CBLD program. It gives co-op leadership an opportunity to work together as a group in a dynamic environment with people from other co-ops.
Each year the Cooperative Cafes will have a changing theme and will contain new content about how leaders can engage constituents and gain support in their communities for co-op growth and development.
For more information about the Cooperative Cafes and other CBLD events, please visit our website.
