Advancing Racial Economic Equity through Credit Union and Community Partnerships


Millions of Americans – particularly those in communities of color – lack access to responsible credit, affordable financial products, and institutions that support their overall well-being. Historically, financial institutions have had deep histories of discrimination and disinvestment in communities of color. However, since cooperative financial institutions are embedded within communities, credit unions have tremendous potential to affect positive systemic change.

Filene has spent the last year on a learning journey exploring questions and listening for examples, ideas, and programs for how the broader credit union community can best address systemic barriers that prevent equitable access to financial services. In partnership with Urban Strategies, Inc. and Native Women Lead, we are launching the Racial Economic Equity Incubator to strengthen economic resources for communities of color and work to close racial wealth gaps.

Join us on November 3 at 11:00AM CDT to:

  • Learn about the unique approach we’re taking with credit unions and their community partners to reduce the racial wealth gap
  • Hear how this Incubator plans to develop a new norm and practice within the credit union industry by examining co-creation grounded in a racial equity lens
  • Understand how your credit union can participate in advancing racial economic equity through the credit union system

All Filene webinars are in Central Time Zone.
