|October 26 – DALLAS –The American Mortgage Diversity Council (AMDC) an independent organization focused on advancing the conversation of diversity in the mortgage industry, has launched its mortgage industry Diversity & Inclusion Directory.
The Diversity & Inclusion Directory is a collection of company profiles that are minority, women, veteran, disabled, LGBT, or diverse in other areas, owned or operated. The directory is available online and will have print distribution to servicers, government agencies, and suppliers that are looking to engage diverse companies.
“This Directory is another step in achieving the Council’s ultimate goal – which is to create an industry that is inclusive of all where diverse businesses are provided the opportunity to present their services to those looking to engage in a diverse supply chain,” said AMDC Co-Chairs Michael Ruiz, Director of Supplier Diversity at Fannie Mae and Jay Inouye, Director of Vendor Diversity at Freddie Mac, in a joint statement.
The directory will allow companies in search of diverse vendors to have one central location to find the services they need by searching locally and nationally for services in the legal sector, property preservation, valuations, title, loss mitigation, and many more.
“The directory is one of the many initiatives the AMDC has created to address pressing issues in diversity. I look forward to working alongside the Council’s leadership to help further develop this important resource,” said Erik Richard, AMDC’s Senior Policy and Program Advisor, and CEO of Landmark Network.
The AMDC invites all firms across the industry to submit a profile and be included. There is a yearly subscription fee for all featured companies; AMDC members receive complimentary subscription as a benefit of their membership.
