DEI Commitment

The Ohio Credit Union League aspires to be a catalyst for social equity and financial well-being for communities through credit unions. We will accomplish this by cultivating an inclusive and rewarding environment for our employees and by projecting inclusion and diversity as powerful forces driving collective Movement success.

What We Stand For

We embrace the profound meaning in the words diversity (any difference between people), equity (the fairness of outcomes), and inclusion (individuals’ feeling valued).

We support and promote the eight Credit Union Cooperative Principles including diversity, equity, and inclusion.

We hold the Movement to be a powerful force for a better society as it works to help all people, families, businesses, and communities achieve their dreams.

We accept responsibility for contributing to a League and Movement environment that represents and fosters the unique knowledge and talent of all backgrounds and perspectives.​

We consider diversity, equity, and inclusion to be a vital asset for business growth and success for the League, Ohio credit unions, and strategic partners.​

We demonstrate diversity, equity, and inclusion values through leadership, policies, practices, services, advocacy, and action. ​
