Freddie Mac has been recognized as a 2018 Best Practice Employer for Asian Pacific American (APA) and Asian employees, in three categories, as part of Asia Society's 2018 Asian Pacific American Employer Awards. Freddie Mac was honored for Employee Growth & Advancement, Market Opportunities, and Community Commitment.
Presented by Asia Society, the awards recognize employers that are leaders in attracting, developing and retaining APA employees. The awards will be presented at the 2018 Diversity Leadership Forum in New York on June 20.
"We're extremely proud to be honored by Asia Society," said Stephanie Roemer, director of workforce diversity and inclusion at Freddie Mac. "In particular, we are excited to be recognized for our efforts in employee growth and advancement, as we believe it's not enough to just get diversity in our doors, rather it's important to make sure our diverse talent is advancing within the company."
The awards are based on the results of the Asian Pacific Americans Corporate Survey, a national benchmark study about the growth, development and advancement of APA employees in Fortune 500 companies. Winners were selected based on a statistical analysis of internal employee surveys distributed to APAs, as well as an external judging panel.
