We're Here To Support You

Credit unions were born from people coming together to pool their resources and provide each other with credit and financial guidance. This cooperative structure means equity and inclusivity are inherently built into credit unions, providing a welcoming, supportive environment for all.

At Summit, we strive to demonstrate our inclusive spirit. Our team establishes a true sense of belonging by embodying diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).

"Summit supports diversity and inclusion by making it a priority. We all work together to promote change and collaborate to implement the changes needed. The conversations are ongoing and most importantly, genuine."

– Ayobami Sanni, Commercial Lender 

"I’ve been fortunate enough to be employed by a company that values Diversity, Equity and Inclusion as much as I do. Summit granted everyone a paid Diversity holiday that I spent celebrating my culture by attending a Pow Wow.  It was an honor to share my experience with my peers at Summit and inspire them to take part in local tribal events in the future."

– Harley Funmaker, Senior Universal Banker

“Diversity in the organization makes a difference because you are not just serving the community, you ARE a part of the community you serve.”

– Nataly Cervantes, Mortgage Loan Officer
