Webinar: Building Equitable Cities
Join us on Friday, December 15, at 10:00 am PST for an exclusive, complimentary webinar for ULI members.
An increasingly common concern in cities across the United States is that the overall urban revival is leaving growing numbers of residents behind. At the same time, there is good evidence that more “equitable” cities are stronger economically. There is a business and social case, then, for real estate and land use leaders to help create a more inclusive urban prosperity.
This is the subject of a new ULI book: Building Equitable Cities: How to Drive Economic Mobility and Regional Growth. This ULI members-only webinar will expand upon what the book explores, detailing what’s working and how to do more of it in areas of wide interest among the Institute’s membership, including:
- Affordable and workforce housing
- Transit-oriented development
- Public/private redevelopment
- Community revitalization
- And more.
During this one-hour webinar, you will hear from the authors of the book.
