Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Statement from President Jim Bullard and First Vice President Kathy Paese

Standing Together Against Racism and Injustice

The St. Louis Fed stands where east runs into west and north meets south and where major cities are within reach of small towns and rural communities. Our seven-state Federal Reserve District represents people from every demographic group. Our role is to foster an economy that works for everyone. We stand in opposition to economic inequities, racism, violence and other injustices that tear apart our society. We will continue to conduct meaningful research, convene conversations across industries and pursue initiatives that advance equity, inclusion, economic mobility and resilience for all. The pursuit of those aims is at the root of our ambition as an institution and in the work we do alongside the communities we serve.
