Anywhere Real Estate Inc. (NYSE: HOUS), a global leader in residential real estate services (formerly known as Realogy Holdings Corp.), recently announced its recognition by Forbes magazine as one of the World’s Top Female-Friendly Companies for the second consecutive year. The prominent list is based off direct feedback from female employees and is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.
“I am incredibly proud that Forbes has once again recognized Anywhere as one of the World’s Top Female-Friendly Companies,” said Ryan Schneider, Anywhere president and chief executive officer. “At Anywhere, women fuel our success across a number of critical business, strategic, and financial leadership roles. Our female colleagues empower an inclusive Anywhere culture that attracts and supports female employees across all backgrounds as we work together to empower everyone’s next move.”
Organizations included on the World’s Top Female-Friendly Companies list are multinational corporations evaluated in an independent survey of approximately 85,000 women. Survey participation was strictly anonymous, and evaluations were based on both direct and indirect feedback. The Forbes World’s Top Female-Friendly Companies designation comes on the heels of an additional Forbes recognition for Anywhere: World’s Best Employers 2022.
Anywhere boasts strong female leadership representation, with women comprising 36 percent of the Anywhere Board of Directors, 60 percent of the company’s Executive Committee, and 70 percent of employees across the enterprise. Anywhere has been recognized for gender diversity on its Board of Directors by Executive Women of New Jersey and the Women’s Forum of New York.
Anywhere and its portfolio of brands encourage career development, leadership, and entrepreneurship for members of diverse communities across the real estate industry, through various programs including the industry-first Inclusive Ownership Program, designed to invest in the success of diverse franchise owners, including women and minority groups; What Moves Her, a program that supports women finding their path to leadership; and CENTURY 21’s Empowering Latinas program, aimed at assisting Latina entrepreneurs in obtaining their real estate license. Anywhere is also a national partner of WomanUP, an organization focused on increasing the representation of women-owned brokerages and women in corporate leadership roles across the real estate industry.
