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.
