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) to promote diversity and inclusion. ODI builds on the Board's long-standing efforts to promote equal employment opportunity and diversity and to foster diversity in procurement.
ODI's mission and scope include the responsibilities identified in section 342 for the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI), as well as Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) compliance and programs, and initiatives addressing diversity and inclusion. ODI works to assess the Board's diversity policies, programs, and performance to determine progress and increase transparency. ODI's ongoing effort to foster an informed dialogue on diversity best practices includes participation in Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) technical workshops, attendance at conferences and events held by professional organizations, and participation in financial industry groups.
