Credit unions have a much higher percentage of women in executive leadership than most other industries in the United States. With March being Women's History Month, below is an article that was published last week on the Credit Union IT Compliance blog by enCompass Group, that sheds some light on how, at many credit unions, women are truly the credit union core:
- 57% of professional occupations in the U.S. workforce are held by women
- Only 26% of professional IT jobs are held by women
- The numbers on women in executive level positions in IT are even more skewed in favor of males.
