CUNA-League System Small CU Webinar Series: Know Your Members
Tuesday, August 18, 2020, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

Title: Getting to Know Your Members A LOT Better and Why DEI Matters

Hosted by: Wisconsin Credit Union League

Speaker: Josh Roberts, CCUE, CUDE, VP of System Collaboration & Development

For credit unions to be effective in serving their communities, they must first understand the diversity in their communities. The focus of diversity, equity, and inclusion are so much more than visible characteristics, and what separates us, but rather what makes our communities better. This isn't a journey that each credit union needs to tackle on their own. Credit unions can partner with community groups, local organizations and other credit unions to help create a path to a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization.

In this session, we will:

  • Define diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Understand how to breakdown what the perceived diversity in your communities is and educate staff, boards, and members on the realities of diversity in your community through various resources
  • How to make the business case for DEI and how to make sure your credit union's internal culture matches with your external culture
  • Making sure the credit union isn't just talking about DEI but is instead actively showcasing their efforts
