In addition to being massive, the Dodd-Frank regs have a number of fairly obscure components which may have a huge impact on financial services. On such provision is Section 342 of the Dodd-Frank Act which mandates covered governmental agencies to establish an Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI) to oversee diversity efforts of the agencies, regulated entities and agency contractors. Interestingly, experts say that depending on how it will be implemented, this section of the Act would have a great impact on how diversity issues are handled by covered agencies. Will you be ready?
The Knowledge Group is producing Dodd-Frank: The New Office of Minority & Women Inclusion for Banks (Sec. 342) Live Webcast to help you understand the nuts and bolts of Dodd-Frank’s Section 342 and its impact. The distinguished panel will present their expert opinions in a two-hour live webcast. A Q&A session is also included in this event.
