Last call: CU diversity self-assessment due on Friday
Posted January 08, 2021 by CUNA Advocacy

Submissions for the 2020 Credit Union Diversity Self-Assessment (CUDSA) are due by Friday, January 15.  

Annual Voluntary Credit Union Diversity Self-Assessment

Best Practices for Demonstrating a Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity coupled with inclusion should be a strategic business goal for credit unions. This Self-Assessment reflects guidance for advancing workforce and supplier diversity and identifies best practices for demonstrating a commitment to diversity and inclusion. When made a priority, diversity and inclusion can help your credit union grow and better serve your membership.

The NCUA provides this form in support of the Interagency Policy Statement Establishing Joint Standards for Assessing Diversity Policies and Practices. It is designed to guide and inform a credit union’s self-assessment. Credit unions are encouraged to conduct and voluntarily submit a self-assessment annually and to use this form as a tool to aid in setting strategic goals and priorities for the credit union’s diversity and inclusion efforts.

To start a new CUDSA, access the form at https://cudiversity.ncua.gov.  Be sure to select the correct year from the drop-down menu.  If you previously started a 2020 CUDSA and saved it, you were emailed a link to your saved file.  Use that link to complete and submit your 2020 CUDSA.
