The Federal Reserve System is committed to fostering an inclusive workplace and diverse workforce. Diverse perspectives encourage an environment where new and different ideas can drive better solutions and service.
In January 2011, the Federal Reserve System established offices to promote diversity and inclusion at the Board and at the 12 Federal Reserve Banks. The offices build on the Federal Reserve System's long-standing efforts to promote equal employment opportunity and diversity and will continue to work to foster diversity in procurement, with a focus on minority-owned and women-owned businesses. In addition to promoting diversity at the Board and throughout the System, the Board's Office of Diversity and Inclusion plays an integral role in the development of standards to assess the diversity practices at entities regulated by the Federal Reserve.
