AMI to hold webinar on inclusion and equity in the mortgage industry

The Association of Mortgage Intermediaries (AMI) is inviting interested parties to join a webinar on Monday to discuss updates on inclusion and equity in the mortgage industry.

Almost a year ago, AMI released its report Viewpoint on Diversity and Inclusion within the Mortgage Industry, which, along with an accompanying session, shone a light on some of the issues facing the industry.

AMI said there have been some encouraging signs over the last 12 months, but there remains much to do on the journey – and this will be tackled during the session set at 10:30am on October 17.

Attendees will also find out about the launch of a new web space for the industry, and the next steps to ensure that the mortgage industry becomes a destination place to work.

Tracie Burton, of HSBC, will host the session, and will be joined by a number of people who have been working hard to drive positive change. Robert Sinclair, chief executive at the AMI, will summarise progress, followed by the launch of a brand new website aimed at supporting this important area. This will be followed by a panel debate with Nick Mendes of John Charcol, Alison Houghton-Corfield of Master Private Finance, Dom Scott of Lifetime Connect, Dina Bhudia of P2M Asset Management, and Andrew Montlake of Coreco.

“The members of AMI and IMLA have been working together over the last year to develop answers to some of the issues raised in the Viewpoint report,” Sinclair said. “With brokers and lenders collaborating, we have pulled together the start of a new journey for our great industry.”

This webinar will be hosted on the Legal & General BrightTalk channel, and those interested to join can register here.
