The international credit union movement is urging the G20 to focus on the importance of proportionality as a way to increase financial inclusion across the globe. The proper implementation of proportionality in regulations for smaller, cooperative depository institutions, such as credit unions, can greatly reduce inequalities and promote inclusive growth. More importantly, proportionality, if applied appropriately, can significantly advance the G20’s goals of promoting financial inclusion by fostering responsible finance through increased access to affordable financial services.
This World Council of Credit Unions’ (WOCCU) International Advocacy webinar will highlight the international credit union movement’s efforts to encourage the G20 to bring more attention to how cooperative financial institutions can increase financial inclusion across the globe.
This virtual event will feature presentations from:
• Elissa McCarter LaBorde, President and CEO, World Council of Credit Unions
• Michael Hatch, VP of Government Relations, Canadian Credit Union Association
• Michael Lawrence, CEO, Customer Owned Banking Association (Australia)
• Ryan Donovan, Executive VP and Chief Advocacy Officer, Credit Union National Association (US)
