"Diversity and Inclusion give way to two other words, 'deliberate and intentional.' Diversity isn't accidental and being inclusive should be purposeful. It's something you focus on. Now, first of all, it's the right thing to do - there's no question about that. But beyond the right thing to do, it's good for business. And it's good for homeownership." - Christopher M. George, 2018 MBA Chairman-Elect and Diversity Committee Chairman Founder, President and CEO, CMG Financial
