Twenty-five scholars have graduated from the ULI Indiana 2021 Real Estate Diversity Initiative (REDI) program, a 15-week curriculum that prepares participants for real estate development opportunities in Indiana. The 2021 graduating class includes:
ULI Indiana’s REDI program engages women and people of color who want to begin or accelerate careers in real estate development. A cohort of scholars are accepted by a competitive process and experience the curriculum together, culminating in a final presentation. The curriculum includes educational sessions and experience‐based learning through a team case study project on a real local site, including development plan, pro‐forma and marketing plan. The program took place virtually from January through April with an in-person graduation celebration on May 6.
In 2019, ULI Indiana was one of four district councils awarded a $20,000 grant real estate diversity initiative grant from ULI and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, to be applied over a period of two years. The Central Indiana Community Foundation has contributed an additional $20,000 to REDI as a program sponsor.
Session sponsors for the 2021 program included Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis, Flaherty & Collins Properties, J.C. Hart Company, Kairos Asset Strategies, and Landworx Engineering.
