Mr. Morris’ presentation, Financial Inclusion for the Disability Community, provided an overview of the financial challenges people with disabilities face in this country and the impact of financial stress on this population. His presentation also included recommendations for the financial industry to make their products and services more accessible for people with disabilities.
The NCUA’s Credit Union Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summit is a full-day event where credit union and industry professionals who are committed to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion within the credit union system will gather to share best practices, address challenges to advancing diversity, and learn how NCUA can support the industry in its efforts.
NCUA is the independent federal agency created by the U.S. Congress to regulate, charter and supervise federal credit unions. With the backing of the full faith and credit of the United States, NCUA operates and manages the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, insuring the deposits of account holders in all federal credit unions and the overwhelming majority of state-chartered credit unions.
