Credit union professionals can attend a three-day virtual diversity, equity and inclusion summit Nov. 2-4, hosted by the NCUA. The goal of the summit, titled “From Intention to Action,” is to provide credit union industry professionals who are committed to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion a forum to share best practices, address challenges to advancing diversity and learn how the NCUA can support the industry in its efforts, according to the agency.
Summit topics include:
- how to get started in the DEI journey;
- how to increase gender diversity in the C-suite;
- facilitating courageous conversations around tough topics;
- diversity in the boardroom; and
- economic equity and justice.
“Embracing the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion is vital to the continued health and success of the credit union system because it leads to better consumer protection, greater innovation, improved solutions and increased membership,” said Todd Harper, NCUA chairman.
