Office of Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion logo

Having a diverse and inclusive environment is important to our Bank, to our employees and to the communities we serve.


At the Richmond Fed, we believe that diversity and inclusion add value to our Bank and to our communities, and that’s why we work to ensure our diversity and inclusion practices are integrated into how we do business every day. 

Our Bank has a long-standing commitment to diversity and inclusion in our workplace and business practices. We established our Office of Diversity & Inclusion (ODI) in 2010 to lead our diversity and inclusion efforts and as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, requiring the establishment of an Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI).

Working with our Bank's senior leaders and diversity and inclusion champions across the organization, ODI is focused on promoting a diverse and inclusive workforce, increasing access and opportunity for minority- and women-owned businesses in our Bank’s procurement opportunities, and advancing financial literacy in inner-city, majority/minority and girls' schools.
