Established by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Atlanta Fed Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI) is responsible for all matters relating to diversity in management, employment, and business activities at the Bank. The OMWI builds upon our long-standing efforts to create an inclusive workplace, attract and retain a diverse staff, and foster supplier diversity.
At the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, we embrace diversity and inclusion as essential to who we are. We rely on the unique individual talents, expertise, and valued perspectives of our employees as well as those of external stakeholders to carry out our mission as part of the nation's central bank.
OMWI's annual congressional reports detail the office's diversity and financial literacy work of the previous year.
