Deadline for ULI Boston Pathways to Inclusion
The Urban Land Institute (ULI) is a nonprofit education and research institute supported by its members. Its mission is to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide. Established in 1936, the institute has more than 40,000 members worldwide representing all aspects of land use and development disciplines.
The Pathways to Inclusion Initiative is a partnership between the ULI Boston/New England District Council, the Builders of Color Coalition, African American Real Estate Professionals (AAREP) New England, and the City of Boston Office of Resilience and Racial Equity and is designed to broaden ULI membership and expand the professional networks of minority developers and land use professionals in New England.
The Pathways to Inclusion program will provide up to 25 individuals of color a scholarship to the 2018 Fall Meeting to be held in Boston October 8th - 11th, 2018 in addition to a one-year ULI membership. This is a value of more than $2,700. This program will also provide a suggested track of programming at the Fall Meeting to mentor the group through key relationships and strengthen the cohort. After the conclusion of the Fall Meeting, the program will provide three cohort convenings during the one-year program to create structured connections to key Boston real estate leaders.
The Annual Fall Meeting brings together over 6,000 land use and real estate professionals from around the globe. The Pathways to Inclusion Initiative has been made possible with the support of JP Morgan Chase & Co, Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston and the ULI Boston/New England District Council.
