    General Description of Collection: This voluntary information
collection applies to entities regulated by the FDIC for purposes of
assessing their diversity policies and practices as described in the
final Interagency Policy Statement Establishing Joint Standards for
Assessing the Diversity Policies and Practices of Entities Regulated by
the Agencies. The FDIC may use the information submitted by the
entities it regulates to monitor progress and trends in the financial
services industry with regard to diversity and inclusion in employment
and contracting activities and to identify and highlight those policies
and practices that have been successful. The FDIC will continue to
reach out to the regulated entities and other interested parties to
discuss diversity and inclusion in the financial services industry and
share leading practices. The FDIC may also publish information
disclosed by the entity, such as any identified leading practices, in a
form that does not identify a particular institution or individual or
disclose confidential business information. The current paper form and
proposed electronic form can be reviewed at the following link:
