Nominations have been opened for the annual 2024 Women in Housing Leadership Awards (WIH), to be presented during the Five Star 2024 Conference and Expo, set for September 24-26 at the Omni Hotel in Dallas.

Five awards will be handed out to the industry’s most distinguished women leaders, including the Rising Star Executive Award, The Diverse Ownership Award, Keys in Hand Award, Corporate Social Responsibility Award, and Laurie A. Maggiano Legacy Award.

The Women in Housing Leadership Awards Luncheon will take place Wednesday, September 26 from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at the Omni Hotel in Dallas. This 13th annual event will recognize the achievements of businesswomen whose contributions will continue to impact the housing and mortgage servicing industry for years to come. The program includes the “Inside the She-Suite” discussion, featuring the industry’s top-ranking female executives addressing their challenges, and sharing inspirational successes they have encountered throughout their careers.
