Time & Location

Jan 26, 2022, 12:00 PM–1:00 PM PST

Online Event

We’re excited to join our friends at COHO, SV@Home, and Housing Trust Silicon Valley for a lunchtime panel exploring DEI within the affordable housing ecosystem

About the Event

Inclusive design – a residential project that begins with the different needs of its residents and evolves with the community where it is sited – is a central part of affordable and accessible housing. But too often, these considerations are swept aside when budgets and timelines take the floor. How might we make the case for inclusive design as a catalyst for more – and better – affordable housing?

On Wednesday, January 26 at 12-1pm PT, Steven Yang, Director of Multifamily Lending & DEI Lead at Housing Trust Silicon Valley, will be in conversation with:

  • Micaela Connery, Co-founder and CEO of The Kelsey
  • Sydnee Freeman, Director of Real Estate Development at Designing Justice + Designing Spaces
  • Rod Henmi, Design Director at HKIT Architects

… and you! We’d love to hear where you’re coming from, where your interest in this topic resides, and what questions you’d like us to discuss. Please fill out this short form [https://forms.gle/6WKn4zePouzN3sZW7] ahead of the event by Friday, January 21 and we’ll include you in the conversation.
