At Pelican State Credit Union, we are dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
While we pride ourselves on our fair and equitable practices, we also acknowledge that we must take further action. We have a responsibility to be better and do better. Below is our commitment to you, our employees and members.
- We are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This commitment is a documented, long-term, strategic initiative that is supported by our CEO/President, Senior Leadership Team, and Board of Directors. While our journey will evolve, we are committed to continuously pursuing it.
- We are committed to self-reflection and self-improvement. Our Senior Leadership Team continues to engage in and study materials related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We actively strive to create a safe space for dialogue about our current position and where we want to progress as an organization. We are evaluating all procedures and strategies with a more informed perspective.
- We are committed to learning more. We recognize that we are not experts in diversity and inclusion and have enlisted outside consultants and programs for additional advice. We will partner with third parties to build a strategy that enables us to continue advancing in diversity, equity, and inclusion for all members of the Pelican family. We are listening, learning, and taking action.
- We are committed to respect, love, and kindness. Through communication and action, we have made it clear that we will not tolerate hate towards others based on differences. As we move forward, we will continue to build trust with employees, members, and clients to create a safe and diverse workplace. The Pelican family is expected to create, promote, and nurture an inclusive working environment.
