Registration is now open for NCUA's third summit focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion, set for Nov.2 to 4. The theme of this year’s summit is All-In on DEI & ACCESS. ACCESS represents NCUA’s initiative for Advancing Communities through Credit, Education, Stability, and Support.
This two and a half day, hybrid event will bring together professionals from credit unions and other stakeholders to promote the value proposition of diversity, equity, and inclusion for the credit union industry; share DEI and financial inclusion best practices; develop solutions to industry-specific challenges; and network with one another.
The summit will include panel discussions with experts and practitioners in diversity, equity, and inclusion along with fireside chats, roundtables, and keynote speakers.
Session topics cover a wide range of DEI-related areas such as how to build and sustain a successful DEI program, how to advocate for equity in the workplace, cryptocurrency and the unbanked, digital access, and inclusive lending. The third day of the Summit will feature a workshop with a specific focus on Minority Depository Institutions and the financial health disparities facing different communities.
