June 29 | Oakland. . .Blacks and the Urban Future

What happens when (if?) developers, the city, and public agencies take a holistic approach to development?

Join us for a candid discussion and gain an insider’s perspective on local real estate development projects, real opportunities for local participation and economic impacts. Let’s talk about where YOU fit in!

What will Oakland look like in 2? 5? 10 years? What are the major residential and commercial projects impacting the community? What level of involvement will local developers and contractors have in upcoming ventures? Who are the players? Where is your technology expertise needed? What job opportunities exist now, during and after the development cycle? How are community needs addressed in the development of the “new” Oakland? What role are African Americans playing in shaping the future?
