DENVER, Colo., Nov. 6, 2017 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Altavera Mortgage Services (Altavera), a Computershare company and leading provider of outsourced residential mortgage origination services, today announced that the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) has honored Altavera with its Residential Leadership Award for Organizational Diversity and Inclusion.
Altavera was recognized for the design and implementation of its Diversity + Inclusion + Advancement + Leadership (DIAL) program, which proactively cultivates leadership opportunities for women, LGBTQ individuals and ethnic/racial minorities and works to remove traditional barriers to their advancement.
“Diversity has been a bedrock Altavera value since our founding,” said Altavera President and Founder Brian Simons, who accepted the award on the company’s behalf during the opening ceremony of the MBA’s Annual Convention and Expo in Denver. “As someone who firmly believes diverse organizations are fundamentally better organizations, this recognition is gratifying both personally and professionally — and accepting it in our hometown of Denver is especially rewarding.”
“These award winners reflect the tangible progress our industry is making on diversity and inclusion,” said Dave Motley, CMB, MBA Chairman and outgoing Chairman of MBA’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee. “But we have a long way to go. The goal of these awards is to celebrate the best initiatives so that they are models for continued progress.”
“In only our second year of existence, we were once again inundated with quality submissions and pleased with the numerous initiatives and programs our members have created,” Motley added.
The MBA’s Residential Leadership Award for Organizational Diversity and Inclusion celebrates and recognizes MBA member companies for their work and dedication in supporting diversity and inclusion as it pertains to hiring, lending and outreach. The program’s intent is that these efforts will contribute to the formation of a mortgage banking industry that better reflects and understands its customers.
