Training Overview

Combat racism at your institution. Stop discrimination from hurting people.

The FDIC just released the agency’s latest strategic plan to incorporate and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in every aspect of its mission and operations.  From overt actions to unintentional assumptions, racism plagues financial institution staff members and accountholders daily. It degrades their confidence, steals opportunities for future success, and perpetuates stereotypes.

You have unique abilities to combat systemic racism, honor all perspectives, and support stakeholders. You can do far more than merely avoid violating Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. You have the power to enable minority staff, clients, and members to be seen, heard, respected, and celebrated by your bank or credit union and ultimately by the greater world around them.
