“By signing this pledge, we are making a public declaration of our continued efforts in the stand against discrimination, racism, and the inequities that exist in the communities we serve,” shared President and CEO Brian McKay. “I remind our team members often to bring their entire, authentic selves to work each day. We celebrate our differences, knowing that each one of us bring unique qualities, experiences, and talents to the table.”
A portion of the CU DEI Collective pledge reads, “Together, we are stronger. Together, we can create a better world where all members of our communities can take part in our democracy, live free of fear from violence, and enjoy physical and financial well-being. We stand for financial democracy.”
McKay continued to share, “For us, this means listening and learning from our friends, business owners, members and colleagues of color. It means having many conversations – and continuing those conversations to gain a deeper understanding of their journey. Only when we stop and do this can we truly evoke change.”
To date, the CU DEI Collective has received support and pledges from nearly 200 organizations and credit unions throughout the nation – signifying their Commitment to Change.
