Public Comment on the Proposed Interagency Policy Statement Establishing Joint Standards for Assessing the Diversity Policies and Practices of Entities Regulated by the Agencies
Six federal financial regulatory agencies – the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the National Credit Union Administration, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency – issued a Proposed Interagency Policy Statement to present joint standards and a model assessment approach for assessing the diversity policies and practices of entities regulated by the agencies.
As mandated by Section 342 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the OMWI Director must develop standards for assessing the diversity policies and practices of entities regulated by the agency. The proposed joint standards and the model assessment approach presented in the Proposed Interagency Policy Statement are intended to promote the transparency and awareness of, and provide guidance for assessing, the diversity policies and practices of the entities regulated by the agencies.
