Diversity and inclusion up for discussion (Image: Shutterstock).

A few weeks ago, I attended a panel discussion on diversity and inclusion at the $1.3 billion Unitus Community Credit Union in Portland, Ore. With those two words seemingly on the tips of everyone’s tongues these days, the event was unsurprisingly well-attended. Audience members listened intently as panelists from three different Portland area credit unions –Rivermark Community Credit Union, Point West Credit Union and First Tech Federal Credit Union – calmly discussed their strategies for making employees and members of all races, ethnicities, lifestyles, physical abilities, gender orientations and religions feel welcome and included.
