NCUA, through the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion, has released its first Credit Union Diversity Self-Assessment Checklist.
The checklist is a tool to help credit unions build the diversity of their workforce and membership and create an inclusive culture where differences make a difference. NCUA will aggregate the results to assess the credit union system as a whole and identify opportunities to help credit unions leverage diversity to achieve their strategic goals. It has no effect on a credit union’s CAMEL rating.
The brief, 28-question checklist is voluntary. NCUA encourages credit unions with at least 100 employees to perform a diversity selfassessment, document the results using the checklist and submit the checklist electronically to NCUA’s Office of Minority and Women Inclusion by Nov. 30.
