    Creating Opportunities for Equitable Development
    Moderator: AJ Jackson, EVP for Social Impact, JBG Smith

    As ULI is committed to ‘inspiring best practices for equitable and sustainable land use’, racial and economic equity must be central to how and where we chose to develop. Our Equity problems are systematic once across many industries and more readily seen across the real estate industry. Our approach to retooling the industry mush be on the system level; only by creating a counter-system and culture will we reset the playing field.


    Our panelist will share how they are practicing racial equity as we explore the Ten Principles for Embedding Racial Equity in Real Estate Development, developed during a ULI National workshop led by AJ Jackson of JBG Smith.
