Office of MINORITY AND WOMEN INCLUSION
The Office of Minority and Women (OMWI) was formed in response to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. OMWI has the responsibility for ensuring compliance with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 involving diversity, civil rights and the promotion of minority and women hiring and contracting practices throughout the credit union industry. This includes:
- Equal employment opportunity and the racial, ethnic, and gender diversity of the workforce and senior management of the agency;
- Increased participation of minority-owned and women-owned businesses in the programs and contracts of the agency, including standards for coordinating technical assistance to such businesses;
- Assessing the diversity policies and practices of entities regulated by the agency; and
- Preserving credit unions run by minorities and/or serving minorities.
This office provides crucial focus and direction to NCUA and credit union efforts to reach all segments of the population. Ensuring diversity of our employees and contractors will open the door to new opportunities for the agency, credit unions as well as minorities and women.
