ULI Pittsburgh believes that thriving communities are built on a foundation of diversity, equity, and inclusivity.
We know our industry has contributed in significant and visible ways to the systemic racial and economic inequity that besets our society. Therefore, we recognize we have a particular responsibility to engage people and places held back by those systems in the myriad policy, planning and design, financing, and development choices that will determine if our communities thrive in the future.
As a District Council, we are recommitting ourselves to diversify our membership, accelerate pathways to leadership for people of color within our council, and share best practices for inclusive and equitable real estate development. Our next step will be to convene a diverse Advisory Board comprised of regional thought leaders to set a strategic plan for programs and initiatives to broaden our reach and deepen our impact.
We invite you to join us, become involved, and keep us accountable to our mission, goals, and region.
