Gulf Winds Affirms Values of Equality and Respect

Since 1954, we have served a diverse membership and fostered an inclusive environment. Like many of you, we at Gulf Winds are alarmed and saddened by the recent senseless deaths in our country.

In these times of uncertainty and turmoil, we affirm our values of equality and respect. These values are our underlying strength and are central to the credit union philosophy — People Helping People. We understand these times demand a thoughtful response and clear statement:

 

Gulf Winds believes in the human right to live without fear that race, religion, gender or sexual orientation could bring harm or disadvantage. We strive to treat people the way they want to be treated.

 

Further, we recognize it is essential to reinforce these values through action. Through our Gulf Winds Cares program, we pride ourselves in charitable investments that benefit our communities. Our team’s volunteer and philanthropic efforts have proven our capacity to care for others. We are committed to mentoring our diverse team, to understanding their unique perspectives, and preparing them for advancement at the credit union. We continue to look for opportunities to grow as an organization.

We are listening. We are learning. We are striving for positive and lasting change. Let’s support each other and lift each other up. Our actions, both big and small, can make a difference.

 

Signed, 

 

Officials and Management Team of Gulf Winds
