Listening sessions have been underway since September 2022 on revision of federal minimum standards to allow for comparison of race and ethnicity across federal agencies.
The sessions are being convened by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and deal with OMB’s Statistical Policy Directive No. 15 (Directive No. 15): Standards for Maintaining, Collecting, and Presenting Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity. Parties can contact OMB to request scheduling of a listening session.
