Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Celebrating our diverse members, team and communities
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is an important strategic initiative for our credit union as we work to effectively serve and represent our team, members and communities. We welcome and reflect the diversity of our communities – and value the different experiences and viewpoints our team and members bring to us.
Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee, comprised of employees at all levels across the organization, guides this initiative as we support equity and inclusivity within our credit union and in the communities we serve. The Committee’s mission is to celebrate the various cultures, backgrounds and interests we all share by researching and recommending organizations the credit union and/or employees can join, advocating for financial support the credit union can provide, and planning events to celebrate the makeup of our team. We also require annual diversity training for all employees.
We look forward to continuing to grow this important initiative in the coming years. For questions, suggestions, and to learn more, please email us at [email protected]

Feeding San Diego
Feeding San Diego was established in 2007 and works tirelessly to “connect every person facing hunger with nutritious meals by maximizing food rescue.” Feeding San Diego partners with more than 600 local food donors in San Diego County and more than 200 California farms to rescue food before it goes to waste. In turn, they redistribute this food to those who may not have the resources to obtain food easily or who may live in a food desert, which means it’s difficult to get enough food to live a healthy life – 1/3 of San Diego falls into this category.
Mama’s Kitchen strives to provide nutritional support to San Diego residents at risk of malnutrition due to critical illness such as HIV, cancer, congestive heart failure and type 2 diabetes, and chronic kidney disease.
