Sept. 24, 2011 - PRLog -- Creative Investment Research, Inc. released a report containing ratings for each of 29  new Offices of Women and Minority Inclusion. Section 342  of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act contains a “provision creating an Office of Minority and Women Inclusion at various agencies to monitor the diversity efforts of the agencies, regulated entities and agency contractors.”

As one analyst noted, “In addition to developing standards for and monitoring the employment diversity of the respective agency, the OMWI will have authority over the entities regulated by the agency and contractors providing services to the agencies.” Service providers covered by the Section include “financial institutions, investment banking firms, mortgage banking firms, asset management firms, brokers, dealers, financial services entities, underwriters, accountants, investment consultants, and providers of legal services.”

The ratings, completed from survey and other data, uses the firm's proprietary Fully Adjusted Return (TM) Methodology to rank the offices based on three factors:

1. Internal agency diversity efforts;
2. Progress made in preparing to rate the diversity efforts of regulated entities;
3. Progress made in preparing to rate the diversity efforts agency contractors.
