A presentation of preliminary findings from a DEI survey of credit unions by the Filene Research Institute revealed progress and opportunities at cooperatives in their ongoing quest to fully embrace diversity, equity and inclusion.

During the Madison, Wis., think tank’s virtual “Amplifying Impact: Connecting Credit Unions and Communities” event Tuesday, Dr. Quinetta Roberson, a professor of management and psychology at the University of Michigan and Filene fellow, shared that the 284 credit unions and partners that participated in Filene’s DEI Practices and Policies Survey rated their leadership’s commitment to DEI as 78 out of 100 on average. “That’s great – that’s pretty high, but it also leaves some room for opportunity,” Roberson said in presenting the figure.
