Claire Lam, Branch Chief
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC); Office of Minority and Women Inclusion
Business and Diversity Inclusion Branch

When Claire Lam immigrated to the United States of America in 1975 as a refugee amidst the Vietnam War, she never imagined that she would have a career in the federal government. But that’s exactly what happened.

Though she spent most of her 25 years in the Department of Defense, with a short stint at the State Department and the U.S. Forest Service, today Claire serves as chief of the Diversity and Business Inclusion Branch in the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI) at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

In her current position, Claire manages programs associated with the requirements of Section 342 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. She leads a team to ensure the fair representation of minority and women-owned businesses and small disadvantaged businesses in the FDIC’s procurement of goods and services; that the FDIC’s contractors are promoting the inclusion of minorities and women in their and their subcontractor’s workforce; and to assess the diversity policies and practices of the FDIC-regulated financial institutions. Claire’s team also administers the FDIC’s Minority and Women Outreach Program (MWOP).

When Claire is not advancing the diversity and inclusion agenda, she enjoys her other passion: exploring and experiencing unique cultures and foods from all around the world. She is also an amateur chef/baker and a loyal fan of her alma mater, the Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University.
