The CUInsight Network podcast: Latino resources – NLCUP

Featuring Barbara Mojica, Executive Director at NLCUP

Thank you for tuning in to The CUInsight Network, with your host, Lauren Culp, President & CEO of CUInsight. In The CUInsight Network, we take a deeper dive with the thought leaders who support the credit union community. We discuss issues and challenges facing credit unions and identify best practices to learn and grow together.

My guest on today’s show is Barbara Mojica, Executive Director at NLCUP (National Association of Latino Credit Unions & Professionals). Barbara shares the journey that led her to her current role at NLCUP and how crashing the GAC ignited her credit union spark. NLCUP is dedicated to increasing professional development opportunities and providing services and financial education to the Hispanic/Latino community.

During our conversation, Barbara explains ways credit unions can support the Hispanic/Latino community and empower Latinx professionals in the industry. She talks about strategically placing leaders for better representation of diverse communities. Barbara shares the challenges women of color face and how the credit union industry can better support them. Listen as Barbara talks about helping credit unions connect, serve, and empower the Latinx community.

As we wrap up the episode, Barbara talks about admiring her mom, treating herself to spa days, and visiting Puerto Rico. Enjoy my conversation with Barbara Mojica!
