Leading. Together.
Our Diversity and Inclusion Committee was founded to bring together teammates from all backgrounds and departments to ensure that DHI Mortgage continues to foster an environment where every employee enjoys equal opportunity for development, recognition, and respect. We’ve also created a Focus Group of non-management teammates to provide boots-on-the-ground advice to our Committee and to actively seek suggestions for ways we can continue to broaden our efforts.

Connect. Together.
DHI Connects groups are a platform for teammates to connect through shared interests, while expanding the diversity of their network. Each DHI Connects group has a unique theme and purpose, and meetings are hosted by an executive sponsor and team lead to help support and achieve the vision the group sets.

Grow. Together.
In partnership with the National Training Department and the D&I Committee – one of the key ways we "Grow. Together." is by all DHI Financial Services team members participating in group discussions surrounding D&I-related topics. These conversations promote a positive environment where teammates are empowered to show up authentically and to have their contributions recognized.  In an environment where collaborative creativity exists, a sense of belonging can be found. Being intentional in building an inclusive team allows the talents and potential of each individual to shine, and having these conversations is one way to support being Different. Together.
