Results from Filene’s DEI Practices & Policies Survey, 2021
Last year, we launched the first-of-its-kind study to explore DEI practices and policies within the credit union system, focusing on documenting the reach of established DEI efforts and how those efforts create value for organizations. Take a look into what we found had the potential to transform how DEI is practiced in credit unions and how this inspired our second survey.Download Report
What’s the Bottom Line?
The research is clear: when your DEI policies and practices are bundled together to advance strategic goals, your credit union is more likely to improve operational performance, financial returns, and mission fulfillment. Ensure that the policies you focus on will have the most impact and offer a return on that investment.Download Report
