Centuries of intentional practices by individuals, businesses, and government institutions have resulted in significant gaps in Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) ownership of homes, land, and businesses. Additionally, as urban, BIPOC neighborhoods became surrounded by transportation systems and legacy industrial sites, they were choked off from more desirable land.

Join our Insights & Impact conversation about the opportunities and challenges to building wealth in urban communities that are home to BIPOC people. Keynote speaker Paul Bauknight will discuss his work and research in the area of developing wealth in BIPOC communities. His philosophy is that “architecture is about more than just making the buildings, particularly in communities that don’t have power and wealth. It’s also about understanding how those buildings get made from a policy standpoint, and how development works economically.”

Our panel will engage the audience, invite curiosity, and foster valuable conversation. Learn about systems changes, knowledge transfer, equity building, and professional diversification taking place to support our urban, BIPOC neighborhoods as they build out to reflect the breadth and depth of talent and creativity within.
