SEC Unveils DEIA Plan
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has released its Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) Strategic Plan for fiscal years 2023-2026.
The plan builds on the SEC's previous DEIA commitments and successes and provides a comprehensive approach to embedding DEIA into all aspects of the agency's work.
The DEIA Strategic Plan is structured around three primary pillars:
People: Build the SEC's future through the SEC's people.
Culture: Foster a culture of inclusivity, connectedness, and belonging.
Mission: Leverage DEIA for mission effectiveness.
The plan includes a variety of specific actions that the SEC will take to achieve its DEIA goals, such as:
People: Increase the representation of women, people of colour, and people with disabilities at all levels of the SEC.
Culture: Create a workplace where all employees feel valued, respected, and included.
Mission: Ensure that the SEC's work is informed by the perspectives of diverse communities and that it benefits all Americans.
The SEC recognises that meaningful and sustained progress in DEIA requires the commitment of all employees. The DEIA Strategic Plan holds employees accountable for their individual and collective roles in advancing DEIA at the SEC.
The SEC's DEIA Strategic Plan is a significant step forward in the agency's commitment to creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace.
The plan is aligned with the SEC's overall mission of protecting investors and facilitating capital formation, and it will help the SEC better serve the American public.
