Help advance racial equity in the housing industry
Fannie Mae created Future Housing Leaders to address the gap in workforce diversity. By leveraging our position in the industry, we can connect college students from historically underrepresented groups to opportunities for paid summer internships in housing.
What Future Housing Leaders offers
Through proactive sourcing and partnerships with recruiting programs and diverse universities, Future Housing Leaders provides companies in housing with a pipeline of diverse talent. The program provides education and resources to students interested in a career in housing, helping them better understand and be prepared for an internship in the industry.
Future Housing Leaders offers employers three ways to participate, so you can choose the options that work best for your company.
Future Housing Leaders recruits students for your existing internship program through our free recruiting service and help them prepare for the interviewing process.
