Lisa Haynes, the Mortgage Banker Association‘s senior vice president, chief financial officer and chief diversity and inclusion officer, will discuss how lenders can increase their diversity strategy to impact minority homeownership at HousingWire’s Spring Summit on March 4.
The homeownership gap between white and Black Americans is larger than in the 1960s, and both real estate and mortgage lenders are looking for solutions. Haynes will be joined by HomeBridge‘s chief diversity officer, Woody White, and CBC Mortgage Agency‘s director of government affairs, Tai Christensen, to discuss how a mortgage company’s diversity has ripple effects for borrowers.
Prior to joining the MBA, Haynes worked at Fannie Mae in several vice president positions where she led a team of professionals responsible for the management of single and multifamily loans worth approximately $3 trillion.
Now, as MBA’s chief diversity and inclusion officer, Haynes serves as an executive-level strategist partnering with the leaders of MBA’s D&I initiatives, promoting a comprehensive strategy to foster a culture of diversity and inclusion.
The focus of the Spring Summit is The Year-Round Purchase Market. Record low rates led to a banner year for mortgage lenders in 2020, and with a demographic tsunami of Millennial homebuyers entering the housing market, this year is expected to be just as incredible.
The summit brings together experts like Haynes who can speak to the topics that are critical to success in another unprecedented year, including:
- What mortgage tech is solving now
- Servicing challenges in a pandemic period
- Operational strategies in the current market
- The brave new world of valuations
- eClosing/RON update
- A new regulatory regime
The summit also features sessions on operational strategies in the current market, the economic outlook, lessons from local markets and more.
