This session will investigate how development and design professionals can support the growth of Los Angeles communities that have historically missed out on opportunities for economic, cultural, and infrastructural improvement. Panelists include Jason Foster, chief operating officer of Destination Crenshaw; Christopher Pearson, senior vice president of Hudson Pacific and co–fund manager of EquiBlue; and Gabrielle Bullock, director of global diversity at Perkins&Will. The discussion will explore approaches to address issues of displacement; how developers can thrive financially while also giving back to the community in tangible, measurable ways; and the importance of equitable practice and community engagement in fostering inclusive design and development.
