Nominations are now open for MReport’s Women of Impact list, which features influential female leaders in the housing and mortgage industry. The honorees will be recognized in the magazine’s special Women in Housing issue in September. MReport is the sister publication of DS News magazine.
The Women of Impact list will be broken down into three categories: Power Players, which honors five executive-level and C-suite women; Leading Ladies, which recognizes top female executives and managers; and Notable Names, which profiles up-and-coming talents who are 35 years of age or younger as of September 1, 2017.
MReport’s Women in Housing issue is a special issue published annually in conjunction with the Five Star Institute’s Women in Housing Leadership Forum, the concluding event at the Five Star Conference and Expo. Happening September 18-20, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Dallas, the forum will be the fifth of its kind.
According to Rachel Williams, Editor-in-Chief of MReport, the forum—and the magazine’s corresponding special issue—are much-needed initiatives in today’s market.
“Gender equality in the workplace is an important issue in our country and, as a woman, I’m proud the housing industry is doing so much to make it a priority,” Williams said. “Our special issue and the Five Star forum are just one small way we recognize these efforts, as well as all the women who lead the housing and mortgage sectors each and every day.”
The forum will include keynote presentations from industry leaders, as well as panels on diversity and inclusion.
