This leadership includes the board of directors, senior officials, and staff managing the daily operations. The following best practices demonstrate an organizational commitment to diversity and inclusion.

C - Procurement and Business Practices – Supplier Diversity

Credit unions can craft and implement supplier diversity policies and practices to expand outreach for and open access to contracting opportunities to minority and women-owned businesses. This involves providing opportunities for diverse businesses to bid on contracts or procurement activities (office supplies, promotional items, and legal, auditing or accounting services, for example) and informing diverse vendors of how to do business with your credit union. The goal is for the credit union to develop a competitive advantage by having a broad selection of suppliers to choose from with respect to factors such as price, quality, attention to detail, and future relationship building. Following are examples of effective ways to implement or demonstrate a commitment to supplier diversity.

D - Practice to Promote Transparency of Organizational Diversity and Inclusion

Transparency and communications are essential aspects of assessing diversity policies and practices. Transparency does not require you to share confidential or proprietary information. Credit unions can communicate information about their diversity and inclusion efforts through normal business methods, such as displaying information on websites, on appropriate promotional materials, and in annual reports to members.

By communicating your commitment and plans for achieving diversity and inclusion and the metrics to measure success in workplace and supplier diversity, you inform a broad constituency of current and potential members, employees, suppliers and the general community about your efforts to promote diversity and inclusion. The publication of this information can make new markets accessible for minorities, women, and other diverse groups, and illustrate the progress made toward an important business goal. Following are some ways to promote transparency of your credit union’s diversity and inclusion efforts.

The NCUA encourages credit unions to disclose their diversity policies and practices and related information to both the NCUA and the public.
