Breaking Down Inequities in Development

How can we remove barriers to racial inclusion in real estate development? Recently, the City of St. Louis Park adopted a DEI Policy for developers receiving public funding. Join us for a candid conversation on establishing DEI metrics for public funding, how it works in practice, the barriers to entry for BIPOC developers, and best (and worst) practices to build collective capacity in development. Speakers to include: Karen Barton, Community Development Director – City of St. Louis Park, and Jimmy Loyd, Economic Development Director – City of St. Paul, former developer.
