            Minority and Women Inclusion

Treasury Building Picture

The Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI) was established by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act signed into law by President Obama. Treasury’s Departmental Offices (headquarters) was one of eight financial agencies and twelve Federal Reserve banks to create Offices of Minority and Women Inclusion. OMWI is responsible for all matters relating to diversity in management, employment, and business activities, excluding the enforcement of statutes, regulations, or executive orders pertaining to civil rights. OMWI is required to develop standards for equal employment opportunity and the racial, ethnic, and gender diversity of the workforce. 
 
In addition to workforce diversity, OMWI is charged with seeking increased participation of minority-owned and women-owned businesses in the programs and contracts of the agency.  OMWI is responsible for establishing procedures to determine if agency contractors and their subcontractors have made good faith efforts to include minorities and women in their workforce.
