CATIC to Develop Educational Program for Entry-level Title Professionals
June 20, 2023
The CATIC Family of Companies and AXIS 360 Lift have formed a strategic partnership to develop an educational program titled AXIS Title Academy. This program is designed to be an education platform that will help address the prevailing diverse talent gap for the title industry. CATIC and AXIS 360 Lift are both committed to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) in a meaningful way and collectively acknowledge that there is a present need to create new pools of diverse talent across this industry.
This free 90-day education program will be open to anyone who is interested in pursuing a career in the title industry. Talent from diverse backgrounds (e.g., people of color; veterans; individuals with disabilities; and members of the LGBTQ+ community) are highly encouraged to participate in the program. This comprehensive educational program will be delivered live and virtually to all learners by AXIS 360 Lift and the program will include the following activities:
- Live classroom training sessions with certified educators and title professionals.
- Interactive lab to reinforce learning content.
- Paid internship opportunity with a partner organization.
- Mentoring support with a dedicated title professional.
- 60-day wellness program and 30-day professional development program.
- Job placement services.
Pursuant to CATIC's corporate social justice strategy, the company aspires to play an active role in building better communities by promoting fair and equitable treatment for all underrepresented groups, particularly women and people of color. As part of this ongoing strategic effort, the company regularly seeks to partner with other organizations who share a similar desire to find innovative ways to create new pools of diverse talent for the title industry as the needs of the workforce and the real estate industry continue to evolve over time.
"Given the dynamic shifts in the demographics of future homebuyers expected over the next few years, it is important to ensure diverse talent is afforded ample opportunity to access various careers available in the title industry," stated Damon Carter, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer. "Doing so will have a direct impact on the consumer experiences of future homebuyers because the title industry will benefit from the infusion of innovative ideas and new perspectives. Furthermore, a more diverse workforce will also more accurately reflect the homebuying community being serviced moving forward."
The educational program is scheduled to launch in the Fall of 2023
