Washington
Award confers women-friendly workplace status on NCUA
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (4/11/14)--Women seeking employment in the Washington, D.C.-metropolitan area might want to check out the "jobs available" section of the National Credit Union Administration's website. The agency announced Thursday that it has been recognized by Professional Woman's Magazine as a "Best of the Best" place to work for women.

Workplaces are scored based on policies supporting equal access, advancement and inclusion of all individuals, as well as other activities demonstrating a commitment to diversity and equal opportunity, according to the agency's announcement.

The parent company of Professional Woman's Magazine, DiversityComm Inc., is a human resources research and consulting firm specializing in workplace diversity. The company annually conducts evaluations of employers, including government agencies, to identify those it classifies as "Best of the Best" in terms of outreach and accessibility to African-American, Hispanic, female and veteran populations.

The NCUA took the opportunity of the award announcement to highlight its most recent annual report to Congress about the agency's diversity efforts. 2013 found the representation of women in executive positions had jumped by 11.2 percentage points to 42.6% since 2011. Additionally, minorities, including multiracial, collectively represented 26.8% of the NCUA's workforce in 2013, an increase of 1.6 percentage points over 2011 (News Now April 1).
 
"NCUA strives every day to be an employer of choice," NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz said. "Part of that effort is to promote workplace diversity and opportunities for women and minorities to pursue rewarding careers."
