CUs encouraged to submit voluntary diversity self-assessment by Jan. 31

The NCUA is reminding credit unions to complete and submit the voluntary Credit Union Diversity Self-Assessment by Jan. 31, 2023.

The Credit Union Diversity Self-Assessment is designed to help credit unions evaluate and advance their diversity policies and practices. Credit unions can voluntarily use the online tool to create a baseline for action, such as making the commitment to develop new products and services aimed at addressing the needs of communities of color, increasing investment in underserved areas, or improving community marketing and outreach.

The information confidentially submitted in the self-assessment goes directly to the NCUA’s Office of Minority and Women Inclusion, which aggregates the data and only shares the results anonymously in the NCUA’s annual OMWI Congressional Report and Voluntary Credit Union Diversity Self-Assessment Results Report. The NCUA will not publish any information identifying a particular credit union or individual without written approval.
