2023 Woman of Influence: KimArie Yowell


KimArie Yowell is the chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer for Rocket Companies and chief learning officer for Rocket Central. She has dedicated her career to integrating diversity, equity and inclusion into all company practices, processes and programs to create a sense of belonging for team members as well as drive business strategies and results. Her goal as DEI officer is to create and sustain an environment where every team member and leader can thrive and do their best work. As a result, she has been able to tie the threads to inclusive behaviors, talent practices and diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Yowell leads with four strategic DEI pillars — talent, culture, community and marketplace — that are all rooted in creating inclusive and equitable experiences and outcomes. Through these pillars, she gives team members the agency to share their voices and pride to champion inclusivity in every interaction. As part of her mission to invest in team members as chief learning officer, Yowell led the creation of Rock Academy — an investment in team members by reducing the financial burden to achieve their educational and career goals. Yowell frequently speaks at TMRN events to empower team members. At a recent event for both the Black and women’s networks, Yowell led a powerful discussion about bringing one’s whole self to work and understanding what it means to be authentic and navigate a career as a woman and person of color in the organization.
