Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43), Chair of the House Financial Services Committee, announced Subcommittee assignments this week for the 117th Congress. U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) was again named Chair of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Diversity and Inclusion, making her the first and only Member of Congress to yield the gavel. Reacting to the announcement, she issued the following statement:

“In order for us to Build Back Better, we must embrace the transformational powers of diversity and inclusion. By harnessing the unique skills, tools, and talents of all people, at all levels in the private and public sectors, we can create a stronger economy and brighter futures for everyone. As the Chair of the Diversity and Inclusion Subcommittee, we made tremendous progress on these fronts in the 116th Congress, but our work continues. That is why I am honored to once again serve as D&I Chair, and look forward to continuing to work with Chairwoman Waters and fellow Committee members to advance our big, bold ‘For The People’ agenda to ensure that the financial services industry better represents and meets the needs of all Americans.”
