Decoding Racial Equity: Understanding Key Terms and How They Apply to Your Real Estate Practice

Wed Apr 10 4:00 PM — 5:00 PM (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time New York Hilton Midtown - Level 2, Nassau Suite
The seminal ULI 2022 publication "10 Principles for Embedding Racial Equity in Real Estate Development" highlights the need for real estate practitioners to recognize the power of language and lifts up an imperative for a shared language around racial equity in real estate. A new ULI report, "Racial Equity Terms for Real Estate Leaders," aims to elevate widely accepted definitions and help specific terms come alive for real estate professionals by demonstrating applications in real estate and development practice. In this session, learn more about the new resource and hear how real estate leaders are building their understanding of and advancing action on core concepts including antiracism, equitable development, inclusion, and more.
