Homebridge has been honored as one of the National Mortgage Professionals 2023 Diversity Leaders. It is a privilege to be recognized for our continued work toward prioritizing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, (DEI) within the mortgage industry.

We center our efforts toward creating greater inclusion within the home financing industry around three pillars: education, community, and culture. We believe that our focus on these areas provides us with a platform to bring about real, impactful change for our workforce and the communities we serve.

The Homebridge Office of Diversity and Inclusion, led by Senior Vice President and Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, Brian “Woody” White, is working to ensure that these three pillars are ingrained in the Homebridge journey as we help customers achieve their dreams of homeownership. In the words of White, “With minority homeownership levels being at its lowest levels in decades, our diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts need to be more direct, innovative, and dynamic to create improved results.”

By offering access to a range of affordable lending products, as well as an unmatched team of loan originators, Homebridge is well-positioned to offer home financing services to historically underserved populations. Through these continued efforts we’re working to make homeownership more attainable to everyone.

But it’s not simply our customers that are the focus of our inclusion efforts. We’re also working to hire diverse talent across our workforce to ensure that the people that power Homebridge reflect the diverse communities that we serve.

Here are some examples of some of the ways we’re working to move the needle on a more inclusive approach to home financing for both our customers and our associates:

  • We’re prioritizing greater access to homebuyer education and enhancing our program offerings to meet the needs of first-time homebuyers.
  • We’re building relationships with community groups that are focused on housing.
  • We’re identifying, recruiting, and hiring diverse talent across the company.
