In August 2016, the final pieces of Dodd-Frank 342 rules were finalized. An institution's diversity self assessments will now be collected and used by the federal banking agencies to "monitor diversity and inclusion trends and identify leading policies and practices in the financial services industry."
Dodd-Frank's Section 342 mandated the creation of the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI). This office is tasked with developing the standards for diverse policies and practices applied to financial institutions regulated by the federal banking agencies. The goal of the standards is to "promote transparency and awareness of diversity policies and practices". An Interagency Policy Statement, effective June 10, 2015, was issued to outline expectations and help institutions comply with requirements. Institutions are required to understand these standards and perform a diversity self assessment of their institution.
This session will explore the Final Interagency Policy Statement Establishing Joint Standards for Assessing the Diversity Policies and Practices of Entities Regulated by the Agencies and how you can apply these standards to your institution.
