Partnership for Progress is a Federal Reserve System program created to preserve and promote minority-owned institutions and enhance their ability to thrive in an increasingly competitive banking environment.
Supporting minority-owned institutions is fundamental to the Federal Reserve's mission to provide a safe, sound, and accessible banking system that protects consumers and promotes competition.

Are you a new bank director or an existing director who would like a quick review on the basics?
If so, then this program is for you!
Due in large part to the financial crisis and economic recovery in recent years, the need for bank directors to better understand their roles and risks both for themselves and the affiliated banking organization to which they serve has become increasingly evident.
The Federal Reserve created this brief course structured around the Insights for Bank Directors book, anchored by four (4) live webinars between March and June of this year.
