The American Mortgage Diversity Council (AMDC) this week announced that it is accepting RFPs for an education module that recognizes the opportunity to promote knowledge surrounding key diversity and inclusion subject matter in the workplace and fortifies the conversation through training across the mortgage servicing industry.
Founded in 2015, the AMDC is an independent membership organization focused on advancing the conversation of diversity and inclusion within the mortgage industry. From supply-chain diversity, to addressing the challenges faced by minority and women-owned businesses, AMDC focuses on changing the landscape of the mortgage industry.
“The education module will be used as a tool to strengthen the diversity and inclusion conversation, and will provide training to further understanding of topics including but not limited to the implementation of Dodd-Frank Provision 342, hiring practices, supply-chain diversity, compliance, and regulation that directly affects diversity and inclusion,” said Tami Rund, Chair of AMDC’s Education and Training Subcommittee and President at Asset Val.
Professionals who utilize the AMDC education module will be provided with multiple case studies and scenarios associated with a specific topic and after reading, provided a series of assessment questions to gauge understanding and comprehension of content.
Erik Richard, CEO of Landmark and Senior Advisor for the AMDC, hopes that the education module incites meaningful dialogue between mortgage professionals and introduces companies to more streamlined diversity and inclusion practices.
“The introduction of this education module will put the AMDC at the forefront of the diversity and inclusion conversation not only in the mortgage sector, but across all industries.” he said. “Using this comprehensive tool will leverage companies’ bottom line and will ultimately provide a more inclusive environment for all.”
Not only does the AMDC serve as a resource for members to learn about key diversity and inclusive initiatives, but the organization also offers exclusive events for its membership. The AMDC’s 2017 Spring Member Summit will take place on May 10 at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas. The summit will feature keynote addresses, roundtable discussions, membership updates, and member-led dialogue focusing on pertinent diversity issues affecting the mortgage industry.
