Long-standing partnership with Urban Land Institute’s Real Estate Diversity Initiative

Professional Development in Action

“ULI REDI provides this wonderful opportunity for broader learning and change, and we are honored to be a supporter of this impactful initiative.”

Lynn Camp, Vice President of Corporate Finance

Since 2018, when the Minnesota program launched, we have been an unwavering partner in REDI's mission.

For many years, United Properties has been a proud supporter of the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) Real Estate Diversity Initiative (REDI), providing BIPOC and female professionals with the opportunity to further their careers in commercial real estate. Through 12 sessions, participants get a comprehensive understanding of the development process by engaging with curriculum material and case studies. At the end of the course, each team will have produced a development plan, pro forma, and marketing plan.

Our contributions include over 350 hours of volunteer work, hosting the 2022 cohort’s graduation ceremony at our Minneapolis headquarters, and having many members of our Minnesota development team lead a session. Additionally, our executives have served as judges for final presentations, and we have donated over $70,000 since 2018 in order to further the program’s success in both Colorado and Minnesota.

At United Properties, we believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential to building strong and sustainable communities. We are committed to providing BIPOC professionals and women in real estate with the tools and resources they need to thrive in this field.

We are proud to partner with REDI to support their mission of cultivating future industry leaders. Our involvement allows us to contribute to advancing diversity and inclusion in the field, and we look forward to continuing our role as a dedicated partner.
