NCUA’s Office of Minority and Women Inclusion
In April, NCUA filed its first report to Congress on its Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI) and is expected to issue a proposal for comment in the future on standards for assessing credit unions' diversity policies. NAFCU wrote a letter to NCUA addressing OMWI’s assessment of credit unions’ diversity policy. March 29, 2012 - OMWI Assessment of CU's Diversity Practices.
