Project Implicit: Understand your own bias
The Implicit Association Test (IAT) measures attitudes and beliefs that people may be unwilling or unable to report. The IAT may be especially interesting if it shows that you have an implicit attitude that you did not know about.
Credit Union Diversity Self-Assessment
The assessment is designed to help credit unions assess existing diversity and inclusion policies and practices, and identify opportunities to implement best practices in diversity and inclusion. Development of effective diversity and inclusion policies and practices takes time. Each year, credit unions will have an opportunity to conduct this self-assessment, and to provide the results to the NCUA. The NCUA uses the self-assessment data to monitor progress and trends in credit union diversity-related activities. This voluntary too has no effect on CAMEL ratings and is a fast and simple way for your credit union to begin building diversity and inclusion programs.
Webinar on Bias in Home Appraisals and the Racial Homeownership Gap
The National Credit Union Administration hostied a webinar on homeownership, the wealth gap, and bias in home appraisals.
