As populations that constitute credit union members and employees become more diverse, it’s important to understand what diversity, equity, and inclusion, or DEI, mean for the movement.
In June, CUNA held a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion eSchool to explain what DEI is, why it matters for credit unions, and how DEI practices can be implemented.
CUNA News editors provided coverage of the DEI eSchool to help credit unions start conversations and consider actions they can take to incorporate DEI principles. This week on the podcast, CUNA News presents audio versions of three DEI-focused stories to come out of the eSchool.
The CUNA News team will continue to follow ongoing conversations about diversity, equity, and inclusion. CUNA is also a founding organization of the CU DEI Collective, a group devoted to furthering DEI within the credit union movement.
You can listen and subscribe to the CUNA News Podcast in Apple’s iTunes Store, Spotify, Google Play, and Stitcher Radio.
