Forbes names RE/MAX one of America’s Best Employers for Women. Senior RE/MAX leaders share how the brand empowers them and others to achieve success.
If you want to see the value RE/MAX, LLC places on women in leadership, look at the top. That’s where you’ll find a team of women executives leading the charge. While a recent survey shows women hold only one in four C-suite positions, RE/MAX, LLC has an executive team that’s 50% female and a board of directors that’s 41% female. Compare that to the average 22% representation on Fortune 500 boards.
This proven track record of elevating women to leadership positions, combined with progressive maternity and parental leave benefits, is why Forbes magazine recently ranked RE/MAX at No. 11 on its list of America’s Best Employers for Women.
According to Karri Callahan, RE/MAX Chief Financial Officer, it comes down to a long-established culture of letting ability, not gender, dictate advancement.
“When Dave and Gail Liniger founded RE/MAX, they always looked for the best person for the job and the best person for the role, regardless of gender,” Callahan says. “At RE/MAX, gender isn’t a point of differentiation. Everybody is in the room because of the skillset they bring to the table and the perspectives they can contribute to help the company grow.”
The numbers are impressive not only at RE/MAX Headquarters in Denver, but throughout the RE/MAX network of more than 130,000 affiliates in over 110 countries and territories. Currently, women make up almost 52% of total RE/MAX affiliates and 34% of franchise owners specifically.
