In recent years, the Federal Reserve System has worked to increase the overall diversity of the Reserve Bank and branch boards of directors and continues to build on those efforts.
The Federal Reserve Board on Wednesday announced the designation of the chairs and deputy chairs of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks for 2022.
Each Reserve Bank has a nine-member board of directors. The Board of Governors in Washington appoints three of these directors, and each year designates one of its appointees as chair and a second as deputy chair.

To that end, the board updated information on its website about the gender and race/ethnicity of Reserve Bank boards of directors and about the sectors represented by those directors. Similar details about Reserve Bank branch boards of directors will be published in the coming weeks.
