During the month of February, ULI joins the nation in commemorating Black History Month. We invite you to learn more about the origins of this annual celebration which began as an effort to highlight the history and achievements of Black Americans and others of African descent in the United States.
As part of our many collective commitments to ensure we are contributing to a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture in the real estate industry and society, we reaffirm our efforts to promote DEI as a fundamental force for creating thriving communities for the future. It is very clear that there is much work to be done to address systemic racism in the Americas.
In our efforts to pursue unrelenting efforts to shape the built environment toward diverse, equitable, inclusive communities, we will work tirelessly across the real estate industry to ensure our communities are equitable by design. We are committed to strengthening our community in diversity by promoting inclusion and equity for our Black members, staff, and all members of our ULI community.
In the coming weeks, we will spotlight the many achievements of ULI’s Black members and projects with notable impact on the Black community. In honor of this month, we would also like to highlight ULI’s foundational research and stories that amplify the history of African Americans in commercial real estate and disparities in the industry:
We continue to believe that current and future industry actions can—and must—remedy the impact of exclusionary practices, thereby creating access and fostering unity.
