MADISON, Wis.—To honor, celebrate and support Black History Month, talent development leader CUES has launched a CUES Black Professional Network.
“We’re pleased to recognize and connect the credit union industry with the trusted Black-owned organizations and individuals that CUES supports and that support us,” said John Pembroke, CUES’ President/CEO. “CUES is committed to diversity and inclusion—not just in hiring practices, but in business partnerships and in purchasing goods and services, as well. Visitors to the directory will find listings for CUES supplier members, service providers, event speakers and more. We recognize that this list is limited, but we are committed to growing it by building business relationships with other Black-owned businesses and professionals.”
In addition, two CUES Podcast episodes are planned to further support Black History Month. The first, Building Bold, Effective Black Leadership at PSCU—an Interview with Marvin York, covers the recently concluded CUES Strategic Leadership Development Program, a year-long program created and facilitated by CUES Consulting. This customized program focused on a group of Black leaders at PSCU, and provided intensive leadership development designed to build the CUSO’s leadership pipeline and prepare candidates for future senior leadership positions. The podcast features the overall experience of the program and the learnings from it.
The second podcast, available February 10, will feature two Black female leaders, who will discuss the challenges that women in general, and Black women in particular, face in their rise to leadership, and the challenges which continue once there.
CUES continues to offer the DEI Resource page, which was launched in June 2020. It houses many tools to help credit union leaders guide their institutions to a better tomorrow, including learning and content, and links to resources and tools.
