Federal financial industry regulators will jointly host the first-ever Financial Regulatory Agencies’ Diversity and Inclusion Summit Sept. 13 in New York City, the federal agency that regulates credit unions said in an email announcement Monday.

The summit, to be held from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. ET at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (33 Liberty St.), is being hosted jointly by the Offices of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWIs) for the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the Federal Reserve Board (Fed), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
