    Appraiser Diversity Initiative

    The Appraisal Institute is helping lead an Appraiser Diversity Initiative with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the National Urban League

    The Appraiser Diversity Initiative is the premier nationwide program designed to attract new entrants to the real estate appraisal field while fostering diversity in the profession.

    Working through the National Urban League's Regional Entrepreneurship Centers, the Appraiser Diversity Initiative is designed to reach diverse, talented candidates and educate them about the appraisal profession; provide resources for interested candidates to help them get on a path to success; and offer guidance from appraisers employed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
