    Session 1:Past-Present-Future; Lessons We Can Learn from our Industry's Past as We Build a More Equitable Future
    Tuesday, September 29th, 9:00-10:30 am MST

    Join us for a presentation on the history of residential segregation locally, including the practice of redlining.  Neighborhoods and their residents that were redlined continue to suffer the effects of disinvestment and discrimination long after these government policies were repealed.  Presenters will discuss industry trends and the initiatives we can undertake together to enhance equality in real estate.

    Amanda Cooley completed her capstone research on the legacy of redlining in Salt Lake City and will share her findings with us.  Babs DeLay will share a real estate professional's perspective about how neighborhoods and residents are still seeing the effects today.  Juanita Hardy, Senior Visiting Fellow for Creative Placemaking for ULI will discuss how creative placemaking can help achieve equitable development for the future.  Ty McCutcheon, President & CEO of Daybreak Communities will be moderating this discussion. 

    Session 2: Inclusive Leadership: How the Best Leaders Build Diverse and Winning Teams
    Thursday, October 1st, 8:30-10:30 am MST (virtual leadership training)
    We will build on the great foundation from Session 1.  The world has changed.  As our Spaces and workforces diversify, our leadership skills need to evolve.  Leaders need new skills that inspire their current and future workforce.  Sara Jones, CEO of  InclusionPro®, will train ULI Utah leaders on the art of inclusive leadership.  The inclusive leader inspires higher team performance, greater innovation, more equitable cultures, and more engaged community partners.  This training session will have a specific focus on leadership mindset and communication skills.  This is a highly interactive training session, please come prepared to fully engage in learning.

    We cover:
         •Creating safe learning environments
         •Understanding the difference between diversity, inclusion and equity
         •Considering our personal multidimensionality
