Case Study

Onpoint Credit Union

As the pursuit of racial justice and economic equity continues, many industries and organizations across the country are looking inward. Locally, OnPoint Community Credit Union, which employs roughly 1,000 people and serves more than 410,000 members and 33,000 businesses across Oregon and southwest Washington, is one such organization.



Partnering with Oregon State University’s Center for Advancing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in Business, OnPoint launched an online, self-paced DEI learning module series for OnPoint employees to advance the organization’s critical work in this area.



The first set of modules, released in March 2021, is part of a larger effort for OnPoint to examine its policies and practices through an equity lens.



The voluntary learning program has been well-received by OnPoint employees, with more than 75% of employees completing it to date. Participating employees have expressed an increased confidence in their knowledge of DEI and a better understanding of the historical implications specific to the banking industry. One employee shared that “the training gave me practical concepts to think about related to privilege and opportunity. It’s some of the best training material I’ve recently read.”
