Diversity is everything that makes us who we are as individuals. According to the National Credit Union Administration,  diversity includes racial background, skin color, ethnicity, national origin, gender, age, religion, language, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, family structure, geographic differences, diversity of thought and life experiences.Here are four ways to promote diversity in your numerator, so your team can more effectively work toward your credit union’s common denominator:last_img read more
