Vancity Leads on Diversity & Inclusion/Upper Columbia Co-op Council News

How do you ensure your workforce reflects your diverse membership? Then create a workplace culture that values differences, safety, collaboration and pays a living wage?

Well, the Board of Directors at Vancity Savings Credit Union has made a commitment to diversity and inclusion, according to Chair Anita Braha. Listen to the first half of our show as Braha explains how Vancity’s core values are fundamental to creating a more diverse and inclusive financial cooperative and that this work is ongoing. 

Then we check-in with Zoë Creighton, Coordinator of the Upper Columbia Columbia Co-op Council to learn how the Saint Mary’s University Executive Education course has sparked much co-op development in heretofore “uncooperative” areas of B.C. That and other new and exciting co-op ventures from the Kootenay/Boundary region.

About the Author:

I love radio and pursue stories about people and communities working together to solve challenges creatively and often, with a lot of heart. It's the human side of the co-op model that intrigues me. That and any chance to travel, especially to smaller locales, where folks seem to know that co-operating just makes good sense!
