Encouraging board diversity – in age, gender and ethnicity – has been a campaign for corporate boards for years. Next month, the concept will arrive at credit unions in the form of a voluntary questionnaire from the NCUA.

Credit unions will be free to ignore the questionnaire. If they do choose to respond, the NCUA will shield their individual responses from members or the public at large. Instead, the NCUA will include anonymous, aggregated data in its annual reports.
