Federal Reserve System
In response to the Section 342 provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act, which focuses on minority and women inclusion, RGMA led a number of supplier diversity training events for executives and procurement professionals at the Federal Reserve System. We have also facilitated a number of capacity building events sponsored by the Federal Reserve System for executives of minority- and women-owned businesses in Chicago and Cleveland. Additionally, we convened a M/WBE capacity building session at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in Washington, D.C. that featured Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke providing the opening remarks.
IMPACT: Great understanding of supplier diversity by key Federal Reserve Bank stakeholders and access to capacity building information by M/WBEs.
