Six federal agencies, including the CFPB, all the federal banking agencies, and the SEC, jointly issued final Diversity and Inclusion Standards on June 9, 2015. The standards affect financial institutions, publicly traded companies, mortgage companies, and any other entity regulated by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The final standards envision that an entity will conduct an annual “self-assessment” of its diversity policies and practices in four areas, and the standards provide “assessment factors” for each of these areas. Regulated entities are encouraged to provide the self-assessment to the regulating agency and to make this information public.

This webinar will explain the new standards and the ways that companies affected can best comply. Ballard Spahr attorneys will provide insight on the design and implementation of diversity and inclusion programs that comply with the final standards by drawing on our experience in assisting Comcast and several financial institutions. More information about the standards is available in Ballard Spahr's alert released on June 9, 2015.
