Survey by Mortgage WOMEN Magazine Identifies Companies that Lead the
Industry in Advancing Women’s Careers
PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Radian Guaranty Inc., the mortgage insurance (MI) subsidiary of Radian
Group Inc., has been named Best Mortgage Company for Professional Women
by Mortgage WOMEN Magazine. The award was announced and presented during
the closing general session of the Mortgage Bankers Association’s
inaugural summit on Diversity and Inclusion in Washington, D.C.
“We’ve worked hard to create an environment where women can excel and
succeed, so it’s gratifying to be recognized as the best in the
industry,” said Teresa Bryce Bazemore, President, Radian Guaranty Inc.
“We’re very proud to be setting the standard for the mortgage industry.”
The ranking is based on a survey sent to more than 1,400 financial
institutions with mortgage company licenses recognized by the Nationwide
Multistate Licensing System & Registry (NMLS).
The Mortgage WOMEN Magazine survey looked at a number of company
measures including the percentage of women employees, the percentage of
women among top earning executives, and the number of women reporting
directly to the CEO. The survey also looked at company policies such as
paid maternity leave, paid paternity leave, executive coaching and
mentorship opportunities, and flextime availability. The companies that
score highest on the survey are listed in Mortgage WOMEN Magazine’s “Top
Fifty Mortgage Companies” issue published in November.
“We initiated the survey this year to raise awareness of the issues
professional mortgage women face in the workplace and to encourage
institutions to adopt the best practices that address these issues and
increase workplace productivity and satisfaction,” said Ben Slayton,
Publisher of Mortgage WOMEN Magazine. “Radian has been an exemplary
leader in this area, so it’s fitting that they are the first company to
win this annual recognition.”
