About Filene Research Institute
Filene Research Institute is a nonprofit, independent think and do tank for the consumer finance industry.
We live by the famous words of our namesake, credit union and retail pioneer Edward A. Filene: "Progress is the constant replacing of the best there is with something still better." Together, Filene and our thousands of supporters seek progress for credit unions and their members by turning questions into research, research into ideas, and ideas into action.
Like the credit unions and communities we serve, we know we’re stronger when we leverage the diverse backgrounds, skills, knowledge and perspectives of our members, vendors and employees.
We’re passionate about:
- Fostering a culture where all feel welcome, connected, supported and valued
- Attracting and retaining a diverse workforce
- Holding our people accountable to promote diversity and inclusion in all teams and partnerships
