Boston – The Boston/New England District Council of the Urban Land Institute (ULI) announced it is accepting applications for its Pathways to Inclusion cohort. The program is designed to broaden ULI membership and expand the professional networks of youthful minority developers and land use professionals in New England.
The program will provide up to 15 individuals of color a scholarship to the 2021 ULI fall meeting on Oct. 11-14 in Chicago. Applications must be submitted by Sept. 25.
“This is our third year running the Pathways to Inclusion program and is just one of the many initiatives ULI has put in place to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the commercial real estate and land use sectors,” says Tim Moore, manager of ULI Boston/New England and past participant of the program. “It is important that as an organization we recognize inequities within our industry and find ways to advance this work by providing opportunities for those otherwise may not be given the chance. We look forward to reviewing applications in the coming weeks and selecting this year’s Pathways to Inclusion scholars.”
The Pathways to Inclusion initiative is designed to increase participation of groups who are underrepresented in the land use and real estate sectors, defined as being of African American/African, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, Middle Eastern, and/or Asian descent. In addition to the 2021 Fall Meeting, Pathways members will also receive a one-year ULI membership, a monetary value of $1,220, and will participate in convenings throughout the year as well as structured connections with regional real estate leaders across New England. Members will also have access to one-on-one guidance to engagement opportunities at the local and national level.
