Report to the Congress on the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion
- Inclusion of Minority-Owned and Women-Owned Businesses
- Financial Literacy Activities
- Diversity Policies and Practices of Regulated Entities
In January 2011, pursuant to section 342 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act), the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the Board) established its Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI). The ODI builds on the Board's long-standing efforts to promote equal employment opportunity and diversity and to foster diversity in procurement. The Board has welcomed the new requirements under section 342 as a complement to its existing efforts as well as an opportunity to strengthen those efforts.
The ODI's mission and scope include the responsibilities identified in section 342 for the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion, as well as Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) compliance and programs and initiatives addressing diversity and inclusion more generally (for example, inclusion of persons with disabilities).
