Coalition For Diverse Developers
Increasing access to under represented residents and professionals in commercial real estate
Historically, real estate and development are not diverse fields. Today, gender and ethnicity are still barriers to advancement. Minority women are subject to a double disadvantage, and are significantly less likely to advance than either White women or minority men. These barriers combined with a lack of access to opportunities and capital create an environment that supports destabilized neighborhoods and a lack of safe, affordable housing due to absentee landlords.
The Coalition for Diverse Developers convenes under-represented residents & professionals in Greater Hartford for the purposes of mutual professional development and leveraged access to development projects.
