Real Estate Diversity Initiative


Would you like to advance your real estate career? Are you considering entering the real estate development field?

Real Estate Diversity Initiative (REDI) is a comprehensive, 15 session curriculum designed to advance the real estate careers of professionals of color and women.

Thirty participants step into the role of a real estate developer, gaining direct knowledge and experience working in teams to produce a development plan, pro-forma, and marketing plan for a real project.

Participants are taught by a volunteer faculty of experienced, multidisciplinary, top-tier practicing real estate professionals serving as instructors, mentors and facilitators who share market-based knowledge and the wisdom from their experience.

The program concludes with REDI teams presenting their proposals to a panel of real estate professionals who engage the participants and provide constructive feedback.

Please note that there is a strong likelihood that many of the 2020 sessions will be taught online via Zoom or related conferencing technology.
