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).
We embrace strategies to ensure
different identities and abilities are present in our organization and membership base.
We focus on continuous improvement to ensure we provide universal access to opportunities.
We see you. We are strengthening
a culture that welcomes and values everyone.
Summit strives to honor and nurture each of our unique experiences, perspectives and identities to create a truly inclusive and equitable environment for our employees, members and communities. Together, we can prove how a commitment to a welcoming, trusting, and diverse culture is our strength.
EVERYONE IS Welcome
We recognize that our strength as a company is directly dependent on our commitment to developing a welcoming atmosphere for individuals from a variety of:
- Racial and Ethnic Groups
- Gender Identities
- Sexual Orientations
- Generational Groups
- Family Statuses
- Multilingual Groups
- Physical and Cognitive Abilities
"We are better and stronger when
we hire, seek, share and encourage diverse
perspectives from diverse people."
– Kim Sponem, Summit Credit Union CEO & President
Different Makes Us Better
We're proud of how Summit members and employees live our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion day in and day out.
"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
– Nataly Cervantes, Mortgage Loan Officer
Equity is our goal
At Summit, we believe our work on diversity, equity and inclusion is ongoing – and this includes our commitment to leading the way to pay equity and greater financial security for women, and for all. Embracing a dynamic approach makes us better in our hiring practices, the services we offer and the overall impact we have on our communities.
