2022 Woman of Influence: Dionne Wallace Oakley


Dionne Wallace Oakley joined Freddie Mac in 2021 as senior vice president and chief human resources officer after a 32-year career in the insurance industry. She saw an opportunity to use her business expertise to help Freddie Mac drive its mission by addressing two important workforce challenges: managing a hybrid return to office model and continuing the growth of Freddie Mac talent for today and tomorrow.

Wallace Oakley has led several initiatives that will continue to shape the future, leading the way with passion, purpose and vision. She led the return to office and hybrid work model that resulted in three return waves for employees throughout March 2022 that prioritized employees’ health and safety while also prioritizing business operations. She has been at the forefront of Freddie Mac’s Future of Work efforts. With the support of her senior officer peer group, she established new corporate competencies and associated behaviors, updated the talent ecosystem and enhanced the performance review processes.
