Event description

Description

BACKGROUND

Section 342 of the Dodd-Frank law establishes Offices of Minority and Women Inclusion in roughly 29 federal financial services agencies. These offices are to implement “standards and procedures to ensure, to the maximum extent possible, the fair inclusion and utilization of minorities, women, and minority-owned and women-owned businesses in all business and activities of the agency at all levels, including in procurement, insurance, and all types of contracts.” Mandated to establish Minority and Women offices by January 22nd, each affected federal agency is staffing up its office. Affected agencies include, but are not limited to, the Federal Reserve, the FDIC, etc.

Chicago Booth alumnus, William Cunningham (AM '82, MBA '83), will walk participants through the benefits and opportunities available in Section 342 of this law (a $199/person value through webinars on this topic).
