Diversity and Inclusion
We value diversity because it's smart business. Our focus on diversity and inclusion creates opportunities — for our workforce, our suppliers, and for renters and homeowners in the communities we serve. Different perspectives make us a stronger company, drive innovation, and support our efforts to make home possible for America's families.
"A strong diversity program helps Freddie Mac's business and allows us to more effectively meet the needs of all the communities we serve," says CEO Donald H. Layton.

Our Diverse Suppliers
The secondary mortgage market is an ever changing and demanding environment that calls for suppliers who maintain high-quality standards, are cost competitive and place a premium on customer service. We focus on identifying qualified diverse vendors who meet these standards. Supplier Diversity works closely with Procurement and the company's business areas so that these suppliers can provide the highest quality products and services at the most competitive prices.
Through our Supplier Diversity program, we've supported diversity in contracting opportunities for more than 22 years — awarding millions of dollars in contracts to diverse suppliers.
