The Supreme Court ruled that LGBTQ workers are protected under existing civil rights laws after a move praised by mortgage industry leaders, including members of the American Mortgage Diversity Council (AMDC).
AMDC Chair Lola Oyewole, VP, Human Resources and Chief Diversity & Inclusion of Ocwen Financial Corporation said, "This is a historic moment for the LGBTQ+ community, extending protections aimed at prohibiting discrimination is a positive step towards the change we all need and deserve.”
"In a perfect world we would not need laws to protect against discrimination, but as we live in an imperfect world, it is great to see these protections being solidified."
