ALEXANDRIA, Va. (June 21, 2021) – The National Credit Union Administration will host credit union leaders, credit union trade and support organizations, and diversity and inclusion professionals during the NCUA’s second Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Summit. This three-day event will take place virtually Nov. 2–4, 2021.
The NCUA’s 2021 DEI Summit will provide credit union industry professionals who are committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion a forum to share best practices, address challenges to advancing diversity, and learn how the NCUA can support the industry in its efforts.

Harper said. “Embracing the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion is vital to the continued health and success of the credit union system because it leads to better consumer protection, greater innovation, improved solutions, and increased membership. I look forward to joining in this timely and critical conversation.”
