Maxine Waters, Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee. “All of these barriers have drastically curtailed opportunities for communities of color to build wealth and thrive in our society.”“By the Numbers: How Diversity Data Can Measure Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” will explore methods, initiatives, and measures that can be taken to promote financial and economic inclusion for all, and will feature a host of participants, both members of the Subcommittee and private sector to be announced.Here’s what else is happening in The Week Ahead:MBA Forbearance and Call Volume Survey (Monday)FHFA Home Price Index (Tuesday)MBA Weekly Applications Survey (Wednesday)Realtor.com Weekly Housing Market Recap (Wednesday)U.S. Census Bureau New Residential Sales report (Wednesday)Realtor.com’s Housing Market Recovery Index (Thursday)Realtor.com’s Weekly Housing Trends View (Thursday)Freddie Mac Primary Mortgage Market Survey (Thursday)U.S. Department of Labor’s Unemployment Insurance Weekly Claims Report (Thursday)NAR Pending Home Sales report (Thursday)Black Knight weekly forbearance data (Friday) Eric C.
