Fannie Mae’s Housing Industry Forum
Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) and Digital Risk are making waves in the industry with their commitment to advancing female leadership within mortgage banking. Just last week, Fannie Mae Housing Industry Forum magazine covered MBA’s and Digital Risk’s co-sponsored event, “Women in Real Estate Finance Networking Luncheon,” which was held at the MBA National Secondary Market Conference & Expo in May of 2016 in New York City.
In the article, the author covers the event, which was held at the conference and featured guests Marcia Davies, Chief Operating Officer at MBA, and Kim Azzarelli, chair and co-founder of the Cornell Law School’s Avon Global Center for Women and Justice and partner with Seneca Point Global, and co-author of Fast Forward: How Women Can Achieve Power and Purpose. Digital Risk’s SVP, Marketing & Client Services Kim Lanham moderated a panel discussion with the guest speakers.
This is the second event that was spurred by MBA’s and Digital Risk’s commitment, which was instituted following the women’s networking lunch at MBA Annual Convention & Expo held in October of 2015. Prior to this event, MBA hosted an open event for attendees of MBA’s Commercial Real Estate Finance/Multifamily Housing Convention & Expo in early February 2016. Digital Risk and MBA will continue this initiative via Digital Risk’s second annual “Break the Glass” Executive Women’s Summit, which will be held in September of 2016 in Sonoma, California. Stay tuned for stories from the event!
