Addressing the gender gap in credit unions

Posted on by

first_img 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Women are underrepresented in credit union leadership roles around the globe with males predominating chief executive roles. This is especially the case in smaller credit unions, where numbers in the United States show that most female leaders serve at credit unions smaller than $50m. These figures, published in a report by the Filene Research Institute and World Council of Credit Unions, revealed five key challenges in enhancing women’s leadership in the sector.The research shows that women tend to work in lower-level positions and in roles that do not lead to executive positions. Women also perceive themselves as having less power and influence than men. Other challenges include the existing leadership climate and the fact that mentors and mentees tend to group towards their own gender. The report demonstrated that there is still significant opportunity for credit unions to realise the promise of female leadership.The World Council’s Global Women’s Leadership Network was set up for this purpose – striving to connect credit union women globally and engage them in professional and personal development through online and in-person educational platforms. Members are encouraged to become more active in their credit unions, share ideas and experiences, and explore international perspectives on the common challenges that face the industry. Over 900 women from 53 countries have joined the network to cultivate their leadership potential since it started in 2009. Members can attend the Networking Breakfast at CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference and the Annual Leadership Forum, take part in local chapter meetings, called Sister Societies, and vote and participate in the Network’s Scholarship/Empowerment Grant programmes. continue reading »last_img read more

Hughes happy to be back in action

Posted on by

first_img Northern Ireland’s fifth-placed finish in World Cup 2014 qualifying may not have been what Hughes had hoped for but he signed up for another attempt and has played every minute of the team’s best ever start to a campaign. O’Neill’s team have won all three of their Euro 2016 fixtures so far, a 2-0 success over top seeds Greece on Tuesday the best result so far. “I had sort of decided that enough was enough. I was getting a little bit fed up with the same old things,” Hughes said of his retirement. “But sitting down and talking to Michael, finding out the direction he wanted the squad to go in and seeing the group of players I could see the potential there and I thought why not give it one more go. “You are a long time retired and all that. I have had no regrets since coming back. It’s been fantastic. “How can you not enjoy winning three games out of three? “I’ve always said as long as we are competing and giving ourselves a chance. That is what it’s all about. “I have never experienced winning three games at the start. I know we hadn’t won the first two qualifiers since 1968 and now we have won three which has never been done.” Hughes has played 14 times since returning to the international fold, taking his tally to 93 caps – third on the all-time list behind Pat Jennings and David Healy. Defender Aaron Hughes is delighted he was talked out of retirement by Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill. Hughes, 34, captained his country for eight years before calling time on his international career in September 2011. But O’Neill made reversing that decision his number one priority when he took over at the start of 2012 and with the help of assistant Billy McKinlay, who worked with Hughes at Fulham, persuaded him to come back on board. Should he play all of the remaining qualifiers, he will also be the first outfield player to reach a century for Northern Ireland. His experience, as well as that of his fellow senior men, is crucial but he is just as pleased by the recent form of the side’s emerging players. “One of the main things now is the mentality of the group. We are not accepting going away, putting in a good performance but not getting the result,” he said. “The quality of the younger players is so important. You still have the experience of people like myself, Gareth McAuley and Chris Baird but having the likes of Jamie Ward, Ollie Norwood, Shane Ferguson and others there is real quality. “It is looking good for the future, not just the present.” Press Associationlast_img read more

NSoft or strict rules: Outcome-based vs prescriptive regulation

Posted on by

first_img Zlatan Omerspahic, Head of Legal and Compliance at NSoft, delivers a regulatory overview of the gambling industry, including key learning points from 2019 and what to expect in 2020.It is very difficult to find an industry that is changing as fast as the gambling industry, due to all the technological changes. Also, the existence of generally strict rules provides the market participants with special attention because of the high risk of imposing regulatory sanctions if they do not operate in accordance with the rules of regulators in all countries.What have we learned in 2019?It is precisely the challenges we faced in 2019 and those that await us in 2020 in the wake of the intention to further regulate the market and thereby impose additional sanctions for business non-compliance.One of the most striking examples was the ban on marketing activities of gambling entrepreneurs in Italy, which was a hot topic throughout the year. This ban has shown that the regulatory process can impose solutions that are neither efficient nor legal. The essence of the ban was as follows:banning advertising relating to games with cash winnings and gambling, including indirect advertising, the press, billboards and electronics, etc ..the ban was also applied to any sponsorship agreements involving any type of communication and promotional contentthe prohibition also applied to any existing contracts, implying that the decision had a retroactive effect as wellHowever, the fact is that the complete ban was in breach of applicable regulations since, as outlined in the EU Commission Recommendation of 14 July 2014: “commercial communication of online gambling services can play an important role in directing consumers to an offer which has been allowed and is supervised“. The regulations have previously stipulated that the Member States must provide marketing monitoring measures in such a way that marketing can be limited with measures that are proportionate and reasonable, which is certainly not a total ban. The real question that will only be answered later is what has been the impact of Italy’s advertising ban on operators’ profitability?When it comes to 2020, the question is whether outcome-based regulation, such as seen in the UK and Sweden, leaves more open to interpretation, does the prescriptive regulation, like that in the USA, limit operators’ competitiveness? However, the relationship of regulation that is open to interpretation with prescriptive regulation is a question that is not being asked for the first time. With the rapid development of technology affecting gambling businesses, this ambiguity is to become more significant and multiple regulatory bodies will face the issue of how to regulate the regulatory process and regulations that are part of it? The question is whether it is advisable to allow for a more free interpretation or stricter rules? From a legal certainty point of view, it is always better to have stricter rules, as this reduces the possibility of arbitrary interpretation and discretion by regulatory authorities that can be misused, but on the other hand, too strict rules are closing the market more and disable the possibility of delivering quick solutions that the industry sometimes imposes.The usage of biometric data in the gambling industryMore and more questions are being raised in the context of limitations raised by the GDPR regarding the use of biometric data in the gambling industry. Keeping the current provisions as a legal basis where the collection of biometric data is consent-based, then its use is pretty much doubtful, even with the aim of improving security standards and reducing the harmful effects of betting. Operators will increasingly need to look for effective solutions to counteract the negative effects of betting, such as underage betting, money laundering and identifying players who have betting addiction issues. For this reason, all existing GDPR provisions, in the context of these operators’ efforts, should certainly be further considered in 2020.Market expectations 2020When it comes to potentially interesting markets, we certainly expect a lot from SECAP’s public consultation in 2020 and the drafting of the first sports betting law in Brazil. During the 2019 public consultations, there were many interested operators, and a significant step forward in regulating this significant market is expected this year. Another South American state, Columbia decided in late 2019 to allow, through the regulatory framework, the registered operators to offer virtual games to players.As for the European market, the Netherlands will begin to offer licensing in the summer of 2020 and the process offers many benefits. These benefits are primarily reflected in a low corporate tax of only 20% percent, but no tax on bets, no VAT tax on the sale, as well as another important benefit is that the Netherlands Gambling Licence is recognized by many countries all over the world.All this points to a very interesting and challenging business year 2020.
