Women’s History Month

This year’s Women’s History Month celebrates women who advocate for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. HomeSight asked the women on its leadership team how they are working toward this goal.

Today, we asked Director of Resource Development Sekai Senwosret how her department advocates for DEI.

As the Director of Resource Development, my job is to ensure we’re not only talking about diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging – but living it. We partner with funders who show real dedication to these principles. Our fundraising is clear: our mission is rooted in creating equitable opportunities for homeownership. It’s not just about finding partners who agree with us, but those who put their money where their mouth is. This commitment is key to making lasting change for the people we help. I’m proud to be part of an organization that truly makes DEI+B part of its identity in every action we take.

Q: What challenges lie ahead, and how do you plan to tackle them?

A: The main challenge for our small Resource Development team is finding ways to bring in more funds without increasing our costs or team size. I’m looking into using technology to help with this. Fundraising platforms can handle many routine tasks, almost like an extra team member. My goal is to use these tools to keep us efficient but also maintain the personal connection that’s key to fundraising. It’s all about striking a balance between high-tech and high-touch.

Q: What is the most inspiring part of your work?

A: The most inspiring aspect of my job is knowing our daily efforts contribute to a larger cause—helping people achieve something they might not have thought possible, like owning a home. Even when it’s hard to see immediate results, I’m encouraged by the thought that right now, someone could be taking a significant step toward their dream because of our work. That’s the heart of it—making a real, positive difference in someone’s future.

Q: What is your favorite quote?

A: “I always get to where I’m going by walking away from where I have been.” – A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
