Raiz Federal Credit Union receives DEIBA Award

June 20, 2024

Raiz Federal Credit Union recently accepted the DEIBA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Accessibility) Award from The Great Khalid Foundation at its annual Juneteenth celebration. Raiz president and CEO Max Villaronga accepted the award on behalf of Raiz at the gala, representing a momentous occasion for the credit union.

Juneteenth holds significant cultural and historical importance as a day to commemorate the end of slavery in the United States and to celebrate the achievements of African Americans. As we gathered to reflect on this important milestone, we are reminded of the ongoing work needed to address the lasting impacts of slavery..

At Raiz, our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is fundamental to who we are. Diversity strengthens our organization and enriches our ability to serve our community. With a team of individuals from diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives, we are better equipped to understand and meet the needs of our members while creating competitive and rewarding career opportunities for individuals from all walks of life.

Receiving the DEIBA Award was a proud moment for Raiz Federal Credit Union. It is a testament to our ongoing efforts to promote diversity and inclusion within our organization. We sincerely thank The Great Khalid Foundation and the YWCA for this prestigious recognition. As we continue our journey towards creating a more equitable and inclusive society, we remain committed to fostering an environment where everyone feels valued and supported.

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Juneteenth celebration, and congratulations to all the award recipients. Together, let us strive to build a brighter future for all as we continue to champion diversity, equity, and inclusion in everything we do.
