At Finance of America Companies, we celebrate women at all stages of their careers across the mortgage industry. The accomplishments of the women featured in this issue cannot be overstated. These trailblazers have set an unmatched standard for excellence. They’ve endured, overcome, and improved our industry at every turn.
We also want to celebrate the company cultures that have empowered these women to pursue their career ambitions and make their mark in this industry. At Finance of America Companies, we believe that effective leaders and voices of influence can only emerge from a supportive environment that allows the brightest minds to shine, regardless of gender. That’s why we strive every day to offer women from across our family of companies the opportunity to learn new skills, grow their careers, take on new challenges, and influence the influencers. We’re not just celebrating women of influence today—we do it every day through our culture of opportunity.
To help women advance their careers, we provide mentorship, leadership training, skills-building opportunities, and formal and informal educational programs. We also supply what can sometimes feel like a rare commodity—encouragement. Our goal is to help all of our team members develop the careers of their dreams. For some, that may include leadership roles with an end goal of a C-suite position. Others may choose to master specific talents that are enriching to them and vital to our business’s success. Regardless, women can and do have tremendous influence at all levels of our enterprise.
“I want to provide women with the choice and opportunity to pursue the life they want to live, personally and professionally,” says Finance of America Companies’ Former CEO Patricia L. Cook. “I’m very proud of the career I’ve built, and I want to ensure that other women have the same opportunity to see how far they can go. I want that to exist not just for today but for generations to come at Finance of America. We are all women of influence here, and we’re committed to investing in women—and all our employees—so they can enjoy long, fulfilling careers with us.”
