The OMWI Executive Director and Diversity and Inclusion Team develop standards for
- increasing the participation of minority- and women-owned businesses in the OCC’s programs and contracts, including standards for coordinating technical assistance to such businesses.
- promoting equal employment opportunity and the racial, ethnic, and gender diversity of the workforce and senior management of the OCC.
- assessing the diversity policies and practices of the national banks, federal savings associations, and federal branches and agencies of foreign banks the OCC regulates.
Dodd-Frank requires federal financial agencies to submit annual reports to Congress regarding the actions the agency has taken pursuant to section 342. To view the OCC’s Section 342 annual reports, please visit 2012 Annual 342 Report to Congress and 2011 Annual 342 Report to Congress.
