Championing women’s leadership: Why credit unions can’t afford to wait

first_img“People helping people.” It’s a credit union philosophy that defines our industry and promotes our responsibility of community engagement. It’s also a philosophy that should be applied internally to champion the individuals we work with every day.Currently, there is a great deal of discussion within the credit union industry about one particular sector of workers: women. This is good – but it’s almost always being done by women.To some, it would seem odd for a man to attend a women’s leadership event. But we should challenge ourselves to consider the far greater implications of men’s absence from women’s empowerment discussions. After all, good leadership is the embodiment of culture. And it’s important to recognize that having more women in leadership roles is about relatability and community reach, not just parity. This is why credit unions cannot afford to wait when it comes to empowering more women to lead. If we consider how the communities we serve are comprised, we should ask ourselves, “Why don’t our credit unions look more like the people we serve?”Since the April 2019 launch of the African American Credit Union Coalition’s (AACUC) Women’s Power Series, sponsored by PSCU, attendance for each session has grown steadily and interest continues to increase among AACUC members, as well as the credit union community at large. This webinar series is a testament to the power of partnerships. Collaboration and teamwork are fundamental to advancing the credit union movement and empowering employees, members and other players to be part of the change and betterment of the industry. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

BC Ferries’ Salish Orca Starts Service

first_imgImage Courtesy: BC FerriesCanada-based ferry owner and operator BC Ferries has officially welcomed Salish Orca, the first of three new Salish Class vessels, into service.The vessel’s inaugural sailings on the Comox-Powell River route started in the morning hours of May 16.Salish Orca is one of the three new ships that are dual-fuel and capable of operating on either natural gas or ultra-low sulfur marine diesel.BC Ferries expects that its use of natural gas for these vessels will result in the reduction of an estimated 9,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year, the same as taking approximately 1,900 passenger vehicles off the road annually.The ferries can carry 145 vehicles and up to 600 passengers and crew. With a gross tonnage of 8,728 tons each, the vessels feature two car decks and have a service speed of 15.5 knots.In January, Salish Orca reached British Columbia after a 10,440 nautical mile journey from Gdansk, Poland. Following this, the ship conducted a series of sea trials as part of operational training, verifying the interface with docks at the company’s terminals.BC Ferries’ second of three new LNG-powered ships, Salish Eagle, arrived in British Columbia in late March. Salish Raven, the third ship, departed Poland on April 28 and is currently en route to British Columbia.last_img read more

Nelson Bantams overcome slow start to take two from Castlegar

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsThe Nelson Bantam Reps shook off some holiday rust to grab two of three games from rival Castlegar in West Kootenay Minor Hockey League action during the weekend.After falling 5-4 to the Sunflower City squad Friday, the Reps outscored the opposition 17-6 to win the three-game set 2-1.“We had not played in a game since December 19th and seemed that the kids were simply rusty,” Nelson coach Jeff Hunt told The Nelson Daily. “That coupled with a lacklustre effort made us doomed to lose.”Trailing 3-2 after two periods, the Castlegar Reps scored twice in the third to eek out a one-goal victory, with Edward Lindsay netting the winner. “In fairness to Castlegar they competed hard and showed a lot of passion  — something that was missing on our team  — and deserved to win,” Hunt confessed.However, once Nelson shook off the rust, the Heritage City team showed who was boss. Nelson scored seven times in 40 minutes en route to the 9-4 shellacking Saturday. Sunday, Nelson once again jumped out to the early first period lead, scoring three times in the opening frame, to blast Castlegar 8-2.Nolan Percival and Brandon Sookro each scored twice to lead the Reps past Castlegar Sunday.Saturday, Percival had the hat trick while Sookro chipped in with a pair to pace the Nelson Reps.“Saturday and Sunday were quite different,” Hunt explaining the obvious. “We competed hard and we had great performances from key players . . . including most significantly Dylan Whiffen who doesn’t always hit the score sheet a great deal.“And our best offensive players were at their best.” “We also challenged Castlegar’s strong physical presence — emotionally and physically it was a dramatic shift from Friday,” Hunt added.The series win was especially important for the Reps as Castlegar stands in Nelson’s way to gaining a spot in the AA Provincials in Smithers.The playoffs begin February 7.This weekend Nelson entertains Spokane in a pair of games Friday, 6:30 p.m., and Saturday, 1:45 p.m. at the Civic Centre Arena.Sunday the Reps rekindle the rivalry in the Sunflower City, facing Castlegar at 2:30 p.m. in the Pioneer [email protected]last_img read more

BAFFERT’S ARROGATE DRILLS SIX FURLONGS BEFORE SANTA ANITA’S FIRST RACE IN 1:11.94 AS HE CONTINUES TO PREP FOR REMATCH WITH CALIFORNIA CHROME IN GULFSTREAM’S $12 MILLION PEGASUS WORLD CUP JAN. 28

first_imgWITH GARCIA UP, HE WORKS OVER A ‘GOOD’ MAIN TRACK IN COMPANY WITH STABLEMATE UNINVITED ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 8, 2016)–In preparation for the $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational at Gulfstream Park Jan. 28, Breeders’ Cup Classic Champion Arrogate drilled six furlongs late this morning over Santa Anita’s main track, which was listed as “good” in 1:11.94.With jockey Martin Garcia up, Arrogate came on the track via the quarter mile chute at 11:45 a.m. PST Sunday and went straight off to the Club House turn as he followed stablemate Uninvited.With Bob Baffert overseeing the drill from a private suite atop Santa Anita’s box seat area, Arrogate broke off behind his stablemate at the three quarter pole and he easily overtook him going into the far turn, breezing solo through the lane and although the work was officially scheduled to be six furlongs, he continued to work through the wire into the Club House turn.Santa Anita Track Timer Dane Nelson clocked Arrogate through splits of 24.51, 47.96 and 59.89 en route to his six furlong time of 1:11.94.  Although the work is now posted at six furlongs in distance, Garcia stayed down on the 4-year-old Unbridled’s Song colt around the turn, stopping the watch for seven furlongs at 1:24.56.  Nelson had him galloping out a mile in 1:37 flat.“I was happy with the work,” said Baffert, who hadn’t had his stable superstar out for a recorded breeze since Dec. 27.  “I still have to see how he comes out of it.  It was nice to get the work in.  It wasn’t the ideal situation but we knew he likes the mud, an off track.  Great horses always like the mud.“I was happy with the way he finished.  The other horse, we could have had him a little more in front (at the start of the drill).  We got the work in and that was very important.  I’d rather work on a nice, dry track.  Every time you work on an off track, you’re taking that chance, but I got a nice, stiff work into him so that was very important…“I got him in 1:11 and change, 1:24, out in 1:37 and change.  I was on the radio and I could tell…Once he lost his company he’ll just pin his ears.  When he has that company, he likes to chase something.  He has that tremendous stride.  His stride is his biggest weapon.”As for when Arrogate might ship to Gulfstream, or when he’ll breeze again in preparation for the Pegasus, Baffert said, “I’ll just watch the Weather Channel from here on out, basically.  It’s just like training in Kentucky, just watch the Weather Channel.  There are no set plans for anything–shipping or training.”A record-setting winner of the Grade I Travers Stakes in his first added money assignment on Aug. 27, Arrogate trained up to his half length win in the Breeders’ Cup Classic here Nov. 5 and has been idle since.  Owned by Juddmonte Farms, he has five wins from six starts and has earnings of $4,084,600.  He’ll be ridden in the Pegasus by Mike Smith, who’s been aboard for his last two wins.last_img read more

London Olympic: Women’s hockey team gets Aussie coach and physiologist

first_imgAfter the men’s team turned around its fortunes under an Australian coach and exercise physiotherapist, Hockey India (HI) has decided to go down the same route for the women’s side as well.Australian Neil Hawgood was unveiled as the new head coach of the national women’s team on Monday, with compatriot Ben Dascombe as the exercise physiologist. This will be the first time a foreigner will be in charge of the Indian women’s side.The federation must have been enthused by the turnaround, engineered by Michael Nobbs, and David John, which has seen the men’s team qualify for the Olympics after missing out on Beijing 2008.The Indian women failed to qualify for the London Games but the new coach is not looking to the next edition in Rio de Janeiro in four years’ time.”We have 68 days to our next tournament – the Champions Challenge in Dublin. In the long term, we are looking to the year 2014 which has very important tournaments such as the World Cup, Commonwealth Games and Asian Games,” Hawgood said.”We want the team to excel on the world stage. We are ranked 13th in the world and it would take time to reach the top five or six. We want to compete with the top teams and beat them on a regular basis.”Hockey India and Hawgood, however, want incumbent coach CR Kumar to stay on board.”Kumar is not going out. We want him to work with the junior or development sides or be an assistant under Hawgood,” HI secretary general Narinder Batra said.advertisementThe Aussie coach also wanted to have Kumar by his side.”I have a great amount of respect for CR Kumar for what he did with Malaysia and India. I don’t want him to leave. He has a lot of knowledge and a history with this team, and overall, a lovely man,” Hawgood said.The 50-year-old Aussie, a leftsided forward in his younger days, has had Olympic experience as a player and has been a part of the coaching staff of both their men’s and women’s teams. He was assistant coach for the women’s team at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups and the 2008 Olympics.He was also the assistant coach of the men’s team for the Champions Trophy from 2001 to 2003.Both Hawgood and Descombe were coaching at the Western Australian Institute of Sport before coming to India.”I had an interaction with Nobbs in last November. He wanted to know if I was interested. And I also saw the Indian women’s team in action in Australia, as well as the Indian juniors at the recent Asia Cup in Thailand,” he said.last_img read more
