Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

DEI is more than just a buzz term. Why does it matter at your credit union? 

Organizations with successful diversity & inclusion initiatives are 35 percent more likely to have above-average earnings, according to McKinsey. Two-thirds of job seekers say DEI practices impact their choice to work at an organization.

And once you've attracted top talent, a focus on diversity, equity and inclusion will increase the likelihood people stay with your credit union, which reduces turnover and increases ROA. Personally, I've worked with credit unions who have doubled ROA when properly incorporating DEI into their strategy. 

Are you ready for a more profitable, inclusive credit union where people love to work?

We can help.
