At Freddie Mac, we value our diverse talent and continue to strengthen workforce diversity. Today, minorities and women make up nearly half our employees, their contributions vital in supporting our business and driving innovation.
Commitment from the Top
Diversity is a key corporate value — it’s part of our annual corporate scorecard — that helps us meet our business goals. Our commitment to diversity starts at the top with our CEO Don Layton and Chief Diversity Officer Dwight Robinson. Along with our Senior Operating Committee, they work closely with senior management, employees and our Diversity and Inclusion Steering Committee to review our diversity goals and evaluate each division’s annual diversity plan — to support the overall success of our business.
The Best and Brightest Talent
Recruiting diverse talent is a top priority and part of our management strategy. We provide our executives and hiring managers the tools they need to ensure that diversity is a core component of our recruiting process. We also partner with diverse organizations to bring the best and brightest talent to Freddie Mac.
A Strong Sense of Community
Our eight employee resource groups (ERGs) work together to support our business goals, give back to the community, and provide employees a powerful professional network. The groups also offer employees year-round opportunities for learning, networking, mentoring, and cultural enrichment.
"A strong 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, CEO
