Earlier this year, CUNA released an industry report that found 51% of U.S. credit union CEOs—and 33% of board members—are women.
The “Women in Credit Union Leadership” issue brief examines the extent to which women are represented in leadership positions at credit unions compared to commercial banks.
This episode of the CUNA News Podcast features a conversation between Mike Schenk, chief economist and deputy chief advocacy officer for CUNA, and Samira Salem, vice president of diversity, equity, and inclusion for CUNA, from May’s Economic Update video.
A companion episode featuring discussions with three women in credit union leadership is coming soon.
In this episode:
1:55: An overview of the data
3:34: Comparisons with previous brief
5:07: What may account for findings
6:35: Women and empathy
8:04: Areas for improvement
