This collective was formed in April 2018 to bring together women in all roles and levels in the mortgage banking community to educate, connect, and empower women, and was co-founded by Stacie Rankey and Toni Bramley. “We knew what we were looking for in a group, connecting women was the foundation, but also having a speaker share her story and offer practical applications was key,” Rankey said. “And we knew what we wanted as women in the industry and hearing from women leaders and their path is encouraging and empowering, the format is casual, and everyone is welcome whether you live in Dallas/Fort Worth or you are in town for business,” Bramley added.
