Event Details

Building Equitable Cities

Former Mayor and former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Henry Cisneros will discuss strategies for inclusive growth in cities, improving urban and social infrastructure, and planning for affordable housing.

Henry Cisneros, former mayor of San Antonio (1981-89), was the first Latino to serve as mayor of a major U.S. city in the 20th century. During his four terms as mayor, he helped rebuild the city’s economic base and spurred the creation of jobs through massive infrastructure and downtown improvements.

From 1993 to 1997, Cisneros served as secretary of housing and urban development under U.S. President Bill Clinton. In that capacity, he worked for fair housing and against mortgage discrimination. As the President’s chief representative to the nation’s cities, Cisneros worked in more than 200 U.S. cities from all 50 states.

Today, Cisneros is a principal of Siebert Cisneros Shank and the founder and chairman of Cityview companies. He remains active in San Antonio’s leadership, where he is the former Chairman of the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation, the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and BioMed SA. He is a former member of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
