Fannie Mae realizes diversity is important to getting our company to where it needs to be. Our highly diverse workforce and business partners are key sources of our strength. We want to ensure that we reflect the increasingly rich ethnic and cultural diversity of the American housing market.
We are particularly proud of our efforts over the past 20 years to make a diversity of people, ideas, and experiences a driving force behind the business we conduct. We have one of the most diverse workforces of any financial services company in the nation. Forty-nine percent of the workers at Fannie Mae are minorities and 47 percent are women. Representing a wide range of perspectives, we are able to better serve the families in America’s housing market.
Our Office of Diversity and Inclusion is dedicated to recruiting diverse individuals who can apply their skills, talents, and points of view to the jobs they perform on behalf of the housing finance system. Our leadership programs and professional development opportunities leverage the abilities and activities of our diverse community to achieve our corporate objectives and enhance our business results.
So they have a better understanding of the value of different backgrounds and lifestyles, our employees have full access to 10 Employee Resource Groups – including Hispanic, LGBT, Christian Salt and Light, African American, and INDUS. These groups host events throughout the year showing the richness of our cultures. They also support our corporate priority to help stabilize multicultural neighborhoods through foreclosure prevention and lending efforts.
At Fannie Mae, we understand how putting yourself in somebody else’s shoes can make a big difference in how effectively you work to build a stronger housing finance system.
