Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Dr Vincent HendersonLetter from Vincent Henderson

Teachers Credit Union is a place where members, team members and community members feel that they belong. It has been this way since our founding during the Great Depression when a group of teachers joined together to lend to others in need.

Over the past 90 years, much has changed, but our commitment to our core values of kindness, respect, and integrity is steadfast. We remain committed to each other, our members, and our communities. These values and the credit union mission of ‘people helping people’ call on us to:

  • Extend opportunities to people and our communities who have been excluded.
  • Prioritize diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging, ensuring our members and team members feel they are valued, safe, included, respected, and justly treated regardless of their racial identity, faith, or gender; and
  • Be a leader in our commitment to deepen and support marginalized communities by promoting financial inclusion, equity, and economic opportunity.

With a task force and a leadership position devoted to diversity, equity and inclusion, TCU is committed to a path of rigorous and continuous self-evaluation to make progress in the workplace and in serving members, ensuring that we live our values. As a credit union, we are also deeply involved in the communities we serve, and our leadership in fostering equality of opportunity extends to our financial support for and personal outreach to organizations that share the same goal. We are committed at all levels to allocating our human and economic resources toward fulfilling the vision of a truly inclusive society. 

From our team members to our board members, we have developed lasting partnerships that we look forward to strengthening to help bring about the change that is needed in our community. We invite you to join us.

Dr. Vincent Henderson
Board Chair
