Please join us for our 2013 discussion of fair lending issues and hot topics, sponsored by the Non-Discrimination Working Group of the Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force.

During this session, representatives from the Non-Discrimination Working Group will discuss a variety of emerging fair lending issues and hot topics. Speakers at this event will represent a variety of agencies, including:

  • Department of Justice
  • Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
  • Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
  • Office of the Comptroller of the Currency
  • Federal Reserve Board
  • Department of Housing and Urban Development, and
  • National Credit Union Administration.

The Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force was created by President Obama in November 2009 and is the largest coalition whose purpose it is to confront financial fraud relating to the financial crisis. The Task Force has a five-part mission, one of which is to address discrimination in the lending and financial markets. The Non-Discrimination Working Group focuses on financial fraud and unfair practices directed at people or neighborhoods based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, or any other basis prohibited by law.

We will follow the presentation with a Questions and Answers segment, where we will respond to audience questions. In addition to taking questions during the webinar, please consider sending in questions via email in advance of the event to facilitate the Q&A segment.

This webinar is part of an ongoing series of events focused specifically on consumer compliance issues. The “Outlook Live” Audio Conference is a Federal Reserve System initiative produced in conjunction with the quarterly newsletter Consumer Compliance Outlook.
