    ULI Chicago WLI Presents: 
    Equity in Real Estate | Racial Disparity in Lending

    Tuesday, October 6, 2020
    Join the ULI Chicago Woman’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) for a series titled “Equity in Real Estate.” The series will take an in-depth look at some of the structural causes of racial discrimination in real estate, and some of the solutions. The first part of the series will feature City of Chicago Chief Equity Officer Candace Moore and City of Chicago Department of Housing Commissioner Marisa Novara in a discussion of the causes and effects of racial disparity in lending.
    Chief Equity Officer Moore was appointed in 2019 to lead the City’s new Office of Equity and Racial Justice. Ms. Moore has dedicated her career as an agent of change, advocating for equity by leveraging civil legal services and partnerships with community-based advocates and institutional policy makers.
    Commissioner Novara was appointed in 2019 to lead the City’s efforts to keep Chicago affordable for all income levels through a variety of projects and policies. Commissioner Novara brings years of experience serving on the front lines in the effort to provide affordable housing and dismantle racial and economic segregation, as director of Lawndale Christian Development Corp. and then as vice president of the Metropolitan Planning Council.
    As with its popular Breakthrough Series, WLI is highlighting female leaders in Chicago’s real estate industry and civic community. This special “Equity in Real Estate” series will provide a “deeper dive” on issues that are endemic, systemic, and historic, yet more relevant and urgent than ever.
    To be part of the solution, you must be part of the conversation – everybody is welcome to attend!
