Economic Update video addresses women in CU leadership

June 10, 2021

CUNA Chief Economist and Deputy Chief Advocacy Officer for Policy Analysis Mike Schenk interviews Vice President of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at CUNA Samira Salem in this month’s Economic Update video.

Salem discusses the latest trend of women holding a significantly higher percentage of executive leadership positions in credit unions than in the banking industry. 

The subject of women leadership in credit unions was the topic of an industry report released by CUNA in May that found 51% of U.S. credit union CEOs – and 33% of board members – are women.

The complete video, as well as the full issue brief, can be found on CUNA’s Economic Update homepage.
