CU DEI Collective seeks nominations

Group strives for diversity, equity, and inclusion within the movement.

October 27, 2020

The CU Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Collective is currently seeking nominations for six governing body seats. Seats range from one- to three-year terms.

The expanding group works to further DEI, a shared cooperative principle. The group believes that DEI is good business and is fundamental to a vibrant, relevant, and growing credit union movement. Founding members of the CU DEI Collective include national credit union system organizations and service providers committed to the movement’s cooperative principles.

“We are looking forward to having diverse voices and perspectives within the governing body of this nascent group,” says Victor Miguel Corro, chairman of the CU DEI Collective. “The fundamental mission of credit unions is to provide access to financial services to all by being relentlessly inclusive. The CU DEI Collective needs to grow and establish itself based upon that motivation.”

The DEI Collective's governing body consists of 21 members. The following seats are up for nomination:

  • Diversity-centric organization: One seat with three-year term.
  • Other trade/professional associations: One seat with three-year term.
  • Credit unions: Two seats with one-year terms.
  • At-large: Two seats with one-year terms.

DEI Collective seats are currently occupied by the following founding organizations:
