Support from each DUS lender displays commitment to success

The CEOs of each DUS lender committed time, talent, and resources to support the DEI initiative through this subcommittee. Those firms share job openings, participate in events, sponsor candidates at different career levels to join the industry, and contribute financially to support the initiative. All firms are committed to investing for the long term to help underrepresented individuals find fulfilling positions within multifamily housing finance and provide ongoing support to help them realize their full potential.

DUS lenders provide leaders to serve on the Subcommittee and its three working groups focused on events, communications, partnerships/scholarships.
