Women in Credit Union Leadership Positions

Gender equality is a national topic: what’s the relevance for credit unions? Is there a glass ceiling? What’s a glass cliff?

During this podcast, DDJ Myers will share some of the results and how credit union directors and executives around the country are responding.
