Commitment to Inclusion
At the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, we are committed to building a modern, inclusive, and engaged culture that supports our diverse communities within the bank and across the district. We believe that the diversity of our employee’s experiences, perspectives and expertise is a strength that helps us deliver on our mission and helps us build an economy that works for everyone.
Building upon this commitment, the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco established the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI) in accordance with Section 342 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. The Act seeks to ensure the fair inclusion of minorities and women in management, employment, and business activities of all Federal Reserve Banks, the Federal Reserve Board and other federal regulatory agencies. The Act and the Bank’s long-standing diversity and inclusion philosophy guide business activities that range from staffing and recruitment, outreach to high school students, financial literacy education, to ensuring the participation of minority- and women-owned businesses throughout sourcing and procurement processes.
Employee Resource Groups
Our network of employee-led groups, or employee resource groups (ERGs), bring together people of diverse backgrounds and common interests to create spaces where employees feel like they belong and learn from others. ERGs enhance the Fed community by promoting cultural awareness, enabling connections, solving business problems, and making a difference in the communities we engage with.
