Samira Salem, Vice President of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion, says Step Up worked with CUNA to refine and develop offerings "tailored for us rather than off the shelf." Step Up crafted workshops specific to CUNA by integrating the company's core values into training sessions to help employees understand that they can't live those values if they don't address issues of unconscious bias and microaggressions.

Salem says that Step Up also focused on approaches "to connect the head, the heart, and the hands" to inspire employees to take action. "The thing that I value the most about working with Step Up is that they have been perfect partners," she says. "It's a real strength of theirs.
