AACUC Expands Its 2021 Mentorship Program

AACUC is Seeking Mentors to Serve as Role Models and Career Development Coaches for Credit Union Professionals

Renée Sattiewhite, President & CEO of the African-American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC) announced today a major expansion of its Mentorship Program for 2021. “We are all about Leadership, Mentorship, and Internship” and advancing diversity and career development,” said Renée Sattiewhite. “It is important for our senior and mid-level professionals across the credit union movement to lead the way, in order to make this type of program truly beneficial.”

AACUC is currently seeking 50 Mentors and 50 Mentees for the 2021 Program.

  • Program runs from February 2021 through October 2021

  • Virtual sessions between Mentor and Mentee

  • Quarterly Mentor and Mentee Group sessions

  • Quarterly Mentor and Mentee Check-in sessions

  • At least one meeting every three weeks

The Mentorship Program offers professional guidance and support to AACUC Members and one-on-one career support for those AACUC Members accepted into the program. The program fosters long-term professional relationships between an up-and-coming Mentee and an experienced credit union or credit union partner professional Mentor. This year’s program will offer mentees a complimentary one-year individual membership to CUES, the only industry association dedicated to talent development.

“CUES is the undisputed leader in providing talent development for credit union professionals, so it’s a natural fit to support the AACUC Mentorship Program in this way, and we’re proud to partner with the AACUC to help prepare the next generation of leaders. Mentees will have access to a host of professional development resources through their CUES Membership, including curated digital learning pathways, online networking and Ivy-league executive education courses.” said John Pembroke, CUES’ President/CEO.
