Mission and Vision
Since we were chartered by Congress in 1970 to stabilize the nation's mortgage markets and expand opportunities for homeownership and rental housing, Freddie Mac has provided exciting, challenging careers to dedicated people who want to make a positive contribution-people like you. Together, we make home possible for millions of Americans.
Today's companies face the business imperative of attracting and retaining the best and most committed employees. Our diversity and inclusion strategy is central to meeting this challenge. The ability to engage a diverse workforce and create an inclusive culture is what enables us to fulfill our vital public mission-which is itself diverse and inclusive.
To ensure the achievement of Freddie Mac's vital housing mission, we must foster an increasingly diverse work culture where all employees have the opportunity to be included, add value and contribute to their fullest potential.
The driving passion behind our corporate diversity and inclusion strategy, and the guiding force inside and beyond our company walls, is the Office of Diversity & Inclusion. This office integrates and aligns senior management's vision with daily practices, and communicates goals and progress to the organization.
Our Values Energize Our Mission
At Freddie Mac, we recognize that we cannot reach our full potential unless we embrace a set of values that are consistent with our mission. You'll see them reflected in everything we do; they are:
- Leadership: We take the initiative to achieve our common purposes.
- Integrity: We do the right thing – without compromise!
- People: We practice fairness, respect others, embrace diversity and accept responsibility.
- Excellence: We strive to exceed expectations – individually and as a team.
"A strong supplier diversity program helps Freddie Mac’s business and allows us to more effectively meet the needs of all the communities we serve."
– Donald H. Layton, Chief Executive Officer
