As Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) grows in importance, the League continues to explore ways for its staff and members to lean into the conversation. We have joined the African American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC) as members and advocates and look forward to this step forward in transforming our pledge for CU DEI Collective’s Commitment to Change into awareness and action.
AACUC’s 5-part Commitment to Change Virtual Event is right around the corner on August 10-14. This free conversation series is designed to inspire and empower credit union professionals to lead with a mindset of DEI during this challenging racial and public health crisis to better represent and serve communities of color. Here’s a look into session topics throughout the week:
- August 10, 3:00 p.m. | Handling Emotions & Healing a Community
- August 11, 3:00 p.m. | Leadership in Times of Crisis
- August 12, 3:00 p.m. | Taking Action to Affect Change
- August 13, 3:00 p.m. | Road to Financial Equality
- August 14, 3:00 p.m. | Here, Now, Forever DEI
We’re excited to take part in the series discussion and hope that you’ll find it valuable for your credit union staff. You can find more information and register on the event website. If you have any questions regarding this event, please reach out to AACUC by phone at (770) 761-2769 or by email at email@example.com.
