CUNA signs coalition pledge for DEI

June 16, 2021

CUNA signed onto the Diversity in Government Relations Coalition’s industry pledge to ensure diversity, equity, and inclusion are prioritized at the organization internally and externally.

According to the coalition, the pledge is the first of its kind industry-wide commitment that includes corporations, firms, non-profits, associations, and others.

The pledge reads:

“We commit to increasing understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and its impact on the government relations field; intentionally addressing the gaps in diverse representation of our staff and our leadership teams that influence local, state, federal and international policy; and exploring the unintended consequences that result from policy and advocacy that lack diverse representation, voice, and perspective.”
