Despite making up nearly 60% of the global financial services workforce, only 14% of women in the industry are board members, and just 2% hold CEO positions. So it’s heart-ening that we received thousands of nomina-tions for this year’s Elite Women list – clearly, women in the mortgage industry are doing their part to right that historical bias.
Over the last three months, our researchers sifted through those nominations and polled readers to narrow down the finalists to this list of 100. All of these women are shaping and changing the face of the mortgage industry, shattering barriers along the way. Collectively, their achievements are nothing short of staggering.
