Filene's signature event is returning bigger and brighter in 2021! 

Big.bright.minds. is the culmination of all the best Filene has to offer and brings together a community of credit union leaders passionate about taking their credit unions forward.

We're extending big.bright.minds. so we can focus on what is most important to you and your members at this THREE day event. 

Day 1: How Can Credit Unions Grow?

Kicking us off, Fellows Jeffrey Robinson and Lisa Servon guide us through case studies and insights into how fostering an entrepreneurial culture and becoming more inclusive can help your credit union grow.

Day 2: How is DEI and Community the Key to Differentiation?

Day 2 brings Fellows Quinetta Roberson and Mai Nguyen together to share insights and case studies on activating DEI practices based on insights from the inaugural credit union industry DEI survey and where you can focus your development efforts to address a growing urgency around financial well-being. 

Day 3: How Do You Know When You're Ready to Transform?

Closing out big.bright.minds., Fellows Bill Maurer and Cheri Speier-Pero share insights and case studies into building trustworthy technology and knowing when and how to leverage data for digital transformation.
