We’re hosting a training conference for businesses on demystifying the government contracting process. We want to shed some light on the federal procurement process and provide companies with tips on doing business with us.

Today is my first day as the Director of the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion at the CFPB. I’m coming to the CFPB after serving nine years at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (Commission). There I worked to protect the public from unlawful discrimination and harassment in all work situations.

Our Office of Minority and Women Inclusion will work to ensure that diversity and inclusion are more than just considerations; they are defining standards for the work we do.
