Diversity and inclusion are important at the SEC. Our efforts to promote diversity, inclusion and opportunity include building and maintaining a diverse workforce, cultivating an inclusive work environment, and fostering diversity in our network of suppliers and in the regulated entities we oversee. These efforts are led by our Office of Minority and Women Inclusion.
Our Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan covers Fiscal Years 2020-2022 and serves as a framework for our continued efforts in promoting workforce diversity, inclusion and opportunity, as well as supplier diversity. It includes measurable actions that are designed to help fully integrate diversity, inclusion and opportunity in the strategic decision-making of the agency, enhance organizational effectiveness, and meet future challenges.
