About the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion

To achieve the goals of the Dodd-Frank legislation and to champion diversity at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, the OMWI is wholly supported by the president, first vice president, and senior management. To meet its goals, the OMWI partners with key areas within the Bank, including Human Resources, Procurement, Financial Institution Supervision and Credit, and Public Information, along with the Diversity Council and its employee resource groups.
