Description

Oakland and Its Urban Future

INNOVATION • SOCIAL EQUITY • RESTORATIVE JUSTICE • DIVERSITY • ECONOMIC PARTICIPATION

"As America’s undisputed capital of the innovation economy, though, the Bay Area stands apart. Its path in the years ahead could serve as an exemplar to other regions for how to navigate economic inclusion in the 21st century — or as a cautionary tale."

As an addition to the successful and popular forum series on Oakland real estate development (Oakland … The New Frontier – A Changing Face in the Bay Area Landscape and Oakland … Blacks and the Urban Future) theREGISTRY presents "Oakland and Its Urban Future," which seeks to advance progressive and innovative thinking on real solutions for holistic inclusion and equity in Oakland's burgeoning landscape.

Industry and community experts will be present to discuss Oakland’s future development opportunities, challenges and solutions for diversity and inclusion. Panel discussion topics include:

  • Entire city blocks under development. Who owns all the cranes in Oakland's skyline?

  • Grappling with the consequences of the Bay Area’s dizzying economic growth

  • The struggle: the costs of housing, transportation, childcare, food and healthcare … in this strong economy

  • The impact of inequality — by race, income, and geography — on the region’s capacity to innovate

  • Equitable participation - what it means, who makes it happen, how you participate

The forum also includes the presentation of an innovative initiative entitled “Leadership in Engineering Equity Participation” (LEEP). The LEEP program promotes equitable real estate sector opportunity and wealth creation by establishing industrywide real estate development standard(s)-of-practice, and the adoption of a rating system. Leveraging the real estate development process to maximize social equity and restorative justice, the LEEP initiative will provide a framework to achieve community-oriented priorities and outcomes.
