St. Louis Fed employees
The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis encompasses the Eighth Federal Reserve District, with a head office in St. Louis and branches in Louisville, Ky., Little Rock, Ark., and Memphis, Tenn.
While the COVID-19 pandemic and related disruptions continued in 2021, the Bank remained resilient in its commitment to serving the public through conducting research and analysis on pressing economic issues, providing educational resources and outreach in our communities, and fostering diversity, equity and inclusion in our organization’s mission and business practices. The pandemic limited in-person events, but participation in virtual and hybrid events exceeded attendance of previous years, and other Bank activities remained robust.
This section of the 2021 annual report offers a snapshot of the St. Louis Fed’s impact across the region.
