United Nations Intl. Women’s Day-
Women in Leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world:
Women stand at the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis, as health care workers, caregivers, innovators, community organizers and as some of the most exemplary and effective national leaders in combating the pandemic. The crisis has highlighted both the centrality of their contributions and the disproportionate burdens that women carry.

Our Organizational Commitment:
The past year has highlighted our country’s history of injustice and inequality, as well as our continued need to invest in underserved and minority communities. The credit union industry has always done what’s best for its members and communities. We grow and become stronger as our community grows and becomes stronger. Community has always been part of Mission Fed’s DNA. Safe, affordable financial services are essential to making a better life for everyone.
We also celebrate the accomplishments of many women throughout our San Diego community and history who have voiced the obstacles that women have endured and continue to face in order to fight for a future where gender equity is the norm as well. We need to be just as committed to advocacy as we are to providing financial services. Engagement leads to change.
Thanks this week go to all the amazing women I am blessed to have in my life!
