The National Association of Women in Real Estate Businesses (NAWRB) works to bring women to the forefront of the housing industry with accountability and results by increasing the number of women in the boardrooms and executive offices of America.
Along with their advocacy, NAWRB has several upcoming events to help inform their community of industry developments and better prepare them to successfully navigate the future of the housing continuum.
NAWRB’s Women’s Homeownership Initiative & Calendar
NAWRB’s National Women’s Homeownership Initiative (WHI) is committed to increasing women’s homeownership throughout the country. As women make advancements in our workforce, it is imperative to strengthen their growth with strong economic foundations. As more women achieve homeownership, they will secure their progress and thus pave the way for future generations while lowering the number of women living below the poverty level.
The NAWRB WHI will offer and advocate for:
- Better data collection concerning women’s homeownership
- Special lending programs to increase conversion rate for women homebuyers
- Training on and access to financial literacy and loan qualifications
