Barbara C. Honored as the 2022 Woman of the Year

Freedom Mortgage is pleased to announce that Barbara C., Vice President IT Services, has been honored with the 2022 Woman of the Year Award by National Diversity Awards at the New Jersey Diversity Council’s Women in Leadership Symposium. The Woman of the Year Award is a prestigious honor that recognizes extraordinary women who have made a significant impact. The recipients of this award are women who have demonstrated professional excellence and consistent leadership as a role model and mentor for other women, whose achievements contribute greatly to community and national advancement.

“The National Diversity Council is actually the first non-profit organization to bring together the private and the public and the non-profit sectors to discuss various dimensions and benefits of multicultural environments. We felt that it would be important to really celebrate those who are doing that in their organizations. And Barb was the one to pick,” said Dr. Shindale Seale, Lead Consultant and Trainer for the National Diversity Council.

Barbara was presented with this prestigious award on March 17 at the New Jersey Diversity Council’s Women in Leadership Symposium. The purpose of the Women in Leadership Symposium is to bring together a diverse mix of successful leaders who – through dialogue about topics that relate to contemporary issues – will help to educate, inspire, and empower attendees to reflect on their own personal and professional goals, and encourage them to become leaders within their workplace and community. This year’s theme was Paragon of Womanhood: Restoration, Reintegration, & Reemergence.

“We looked at a top leader in the organization – one who could directly contribute to business growth, strategic direction or really enhance the experiences of those in their organization. Someone who inspires other women and is active in mentoring for the next generation of professionals in their industry,” continued Dr. Seale. “Someone who operates at a high level of integrity and ethical behavior. And someone honestly who demonstrates the commitment of corporate citizenship. And that was Barb.”

“On behalf of the entire Freedom Mortgage Leadership Team, we’d like to congratulate Barb on such an amazing accomplishment and great award,” said Mike Middleman, Sr. EVP, Call Center. “You do so much for our organization, and we appreciate it so much. We couldn’t think of anyone more deserving for this award.”
