In 2010, HousingWire began recognizing women for their influential work in the expanding housing and mortgage finance ecosystem, a traditionally male-dominated field.

Eight years later, the list is bigger and better than ever! This year, our list honors 85 women who are making lasting achievements in each sector of the housing economy. Read on to learn more about these accomplished women and the strides they are making in their industry segments.

We are proud to recognize these women leading out in so many areas. We invite you to learn more about them and celebrate their successes, which benefit the whole housing finance industry.
