Minerva pledge signed by First West

First West Credit Union (240,000 members, $11.9 billion in assets), based in Langley, BC, announced this past April that it has signed the Minerva pledge.

A registered non-profit charitable organization, Minerva BC “supports women and girls throughout the province to gain the confidence and skills they need to reach their leadership potential. From leadership programs to education awards and culturally relevant programming developed in partnership with Indigenous women, Minerva BC elevates the visibility, influence and contribution of women to change the face of leadership in BC,” First West stated in a media release.

The credit union’s CEO Launi Skinner added, “we recognize that there is work to be done in regards to inclusion and diversity at First West.” ◊
