The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) has launched a new networking platform for women in the real estate-finance industry, mPower–MBA Promoting Opportunities for Women to Extend their Reach. mPower will provide an opportunity for women to strengthen their networks, achieve professional growth, and exchange ideas and information about the industry.

“Addressing the needs of this important segment of our workforce is essential to our industry’s success,” said David H. Stevens, CMB, president and CEO of the MBA. “MBA can be the catalyst for creating a strong, diverse network of women in our industry.”

MBA members can access the platform through this newly created Webpage. Once somebody joins the networking group, they can receive notices of MBA’s women’s events, gain access to its resources and information, and join their peers in a private, member-only online community.

“mPower is designed to recognize and promote the rise of women in the real estate finance industry, as well as the overall workforce,” said Marcia Davies, chief operating officer of the MBA. “Our goal is to provide information, events and a networking platform to help women maximize their overall potential.”
