The Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Opportunity
The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland continues to make strides in diversity, equity, and inclusion with the support of the Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Opportunity (ODEIO). ODEIO fosters an inclusive environment both inside and outside of the Bank through supporting Bankwide inclusion, measuring and assessing our diversity and inclusion progress and how our expanded efforts align with our strategies, and fulfilling its Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI) responsibilities. The Bank and ODEIO are dedicated to sustaining an environment in which diversity and equity are foundational, inclusion is valued, and differences are strengths. Our plans and actions are designed to make use of the opportunities that diversity presents. We are working to create an ever richer and more collaborative environment that values diversity and inclusion and fosters employee engagement to establish the Bank as a premier organization in our communities.
As part of our mission and the Bank’s involvement in our communities, we value the diversity of our Bank directors. Please visit the Board of Governors website for detailed information about the demographic characteristics of Reserve Bank main office and branch directors.
