About the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion
OMWI must ensure that SEC contractors confirm their commitment to the fair inclusion of minorities and women in their workforces, and if applicable, the commitment of their subcontractors to workforce inclusion of minorities and women. In February 2015, the SEC issued a Proposed Contract Standard for Contractor Workforce Inclusion and Request for Public Comment (34-74239).
- OMWI is currently engaged in forming strategic collaborations and conducting outreach to diverse professional associations, organizations, and institutions.
- OMWI is proactively increasing awareness of the SEC's contracting needs by conducting outreach and providing technical assistance to expand opportunities to minority-owned and women-owned businesses.
- In FY14, OMWI plans to participate in roundtable discussions to solicit further information and feedback on the Proposed Interagency Policy Statement Establishing Joint Standards for Assessing the Diversity Policies and Practices of Entities Regulated by the Agencies and Request for Comment (34-70731).
