Announcing Credit Union DEI Certification

Building on our work over the past two years in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for credit unions, we are thrilled to announce a brand new DEI Credit Union Designation


Registration for the first cohort begins in April and begins work in June. The program runs a full year, including six months of intense education and training, followed by six additional months developing a project to be implemented in your organization.


Team members are confidentially assessed for potential bias in the areas of race, gender, disability and sexuality (plus the additional assessment categories of weight, skin tone and age bias for those in hiring positions). A customized training plan will be developed for your credit union based on the assessments and our review of your organization's practices and demographics.

Watch the video above for more information or learn more about our DEI consulting, and contact us if you'd like additional details or would like to get be involved. Interested in joining the first cohort?
