Credit unions looking for guidance as they create or refine a diversity, equity and inclusion strategy have a new resource to turn to: “Credit Unions Advancing Diversity, Equity & Inclusion,” a report released Tuesday by the Northwest Credit Union Association and Northwest Credit Union Foundation’s DEI Task Force.

Based on a review of DEI practices at credit unions across the country, the report is intended to support DEI work at credit unions in the Northwest, noted the NWCUA, which represents more than 170 credit unions in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. The task force is made up of 26 credit union professionals from across the region.
