TwinStar Credit Union’s Resolution on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
We believe diversity not only helps our organization rid itself of blind spots, but also helps us relate and add value to the communities we serve. Diversifying management and leadership is also a better reflection of the members we serve. In order to effectively make this commitment, we must institute readiness, recruitment, and retention practices that integrate diversity, equity and inclusion into our mission and work. In those three terms – DEI - readiness refers to our organization’s capacity and preparedness to foster diverse viewpoints, support employees and partner organizations through inclusive and equitable practices and culture; recruitment means the active procurement of diverse talent pools; and retention means building meaningful pathways to promotion and building kinship within the organization so all differences are valued.
Cultural equity embodies values, policies and practices to ensure everyone, including but not limited to those who have been historically underrepresented based on race/ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, citizen status or religion, are represented in our organization.
TwinStar Credit Union is committed to a diverse and inclusive workforce where our employees can develop and succeed. We also strive to be the best credit union for our members, and pride ourselves in offering financial products and services designed to help ALL members achieve their financial dreams. We recognize we must continue to listen, learn and help drive meaningful change in our organization, community, and industry.
