Today, March 8, 2022, we celebrate the many women of Jersey Mortgage Company, from loan officers and loan officer assistants to processors, underwriters, closers and everyone in between.
Every year, International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8th around the world. It is a day to recognize the challenges of injustice women have faced and amplify their voices by taking a powerful step in the direction of advocacy.
It’s a day to acknowledge achievements, tackle prejudice, and look at how far women have come. Together, we celebrate globally to bring women from all over to discuss how we can create positive change concerning equity and equality.
If you had asked someone to picture a loan officer 30 years ago, what image do you think they would have in mind? Probably a man, however, if you asked someone the same question today, you would get different responses.
Women in the mortgage industry have grown immensely. Today, women make up 56.8% of the mortgage industry workforce. The increase in women working in the mortgage industry has also resulted in an increase in women buying homes. Women are now playing a huge role in what was a male-dominated industry.
However you choose to celebrate International Women’s Day, we celebrate the many women of our JMC Team.
