FUND Community Institute

First published October 2019

In 2018, FUND Community Institute (FUND CI) released its landmark study, Perception versus Reality: Women and Change in the CDFI Industry. One of the key findings was that the CDFI industry has a long way to go in terms of achieving diversity and inclusion. To further investigate this issue, FUND CI conducted research to identify the best practices of CDFIs that are recognized as being ahead of the curve in fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion both internally and externally. The purpose is to share both innovative and replicable practices for use by other CDFIs in advancing their own diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplaces.
