Credit unions across the country have redoubled efforts during the past two years to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within the credit union movement. Many cooperatives are now focusing on creating more inclusive and equitable cultures for employees and members alike. However, according to the NCUA’s latest report to Congress, there is more work to be done.
During this webinar, Callahan & Associates’ Katy Slater will moderate an interactive discussion focused on how cooperatives can move DEI forward through mentoring. Join a panel of credit union professionals as they discuss key takeaways from the 1-to-1 Woman Mentoring Program. The program’s founder, a c-suite leader and an up-and-coming professional will share their personal experiences, key lessons learned and advice for others. Panelists include Shellee Mitchell, founder, Sapphire Dimensions, Teri Laufers, chief information officer for Affinity Plus FCU ($3.9B, St. Paul, MN), and Michelle Christie, senior manager, financial inclusion and impact, National Credit Union Foundation.
Webinar attendees will learn:
- Why the 1-to-1 Woman Mentoring Program was created
- How this mentor/mentee pair were impacted individually
- What your credit union can do to encourage mentoring in-house or through external programs
