2018 Women of Influence: Molly Dowdy

Co-Founder, NEXT Mortgage Events

Molly Dowdy, co-founder, NEXT Mortgage Events

Sensing the need for inclusionary spaces in a male-dominated industry, Molly Dowdy took it upon herself to co-create NEXT, the only technology-focused conference for executive women in the mortgage industry. NEXT is one of the few conferences that forgoes that exclusionary regulations of male centric conferences, which fail to deliver high-quality, executive-level intel and networking opportunities.

Dowdy played a vital role in developing NEXT’s initial concept, creating the organization’s mission, developing its go-to market strategy, establishing standards for content and customer experience and overseeing event logistics.

Dowdy scouted and secured many of NEXT’s high-profile speakers, such as Quicken Loans, Zillow Group and mortgage lenders of varying sizes. Through NEXT, Dowdy has raised awareness of the number, quality and capability of women executives in the mortgage industry, and has encouraged the industry to be more inclusive of women, not only as executives, but also as technology experts.

Throughout her nearly 20-year career, Dowdy has spearheaded marketing efforts that have increased value for several mortgage technology companies and has developed numerous visibility programs that have introduced new companies and products to the mortgage space.
