The Kansas City Fed has announced that Tammy Edwards, director of the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion, will expand her responsibilities to lead a new Community Engagement and Inclusion Division as senior vice president. Edwards previously led the community development function of the Bank as vice president.
The new Community Engagement and Inclusion Division aligns with the Bank’s strategic focus on addressing challenging community and economic development issues, promoting the role of women and minorities in banking, and fostering an engaged and inclusive workplace.
Edwards will serve on the Bank’s Management Committee and lead diversity and inclusion strategies and programs across business lines. She also will lead community development, strategic stakeholder engagement, and the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI) for the seven states of the Federal Reserve’s Tenth District.
Edwards joined the Bank in 2008 as assistant vice president and community affairs officer.
