Insights from Housing Leaders

We’ve been breaking barriers and building communities to make a good home possible for the millions of families without one for the past 40 years.

To celebrate, we brought together the greatest minds in affordable housing. We discussed today’s most pressing issues and how to prepare for the next 40 years.

Opening Plenary

Sitting Down with Sec. Fudge

President of Enterprise Community Partner’s Solutions division, Jaqueline Waggoner, sat down for a candid conversation with HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge. Rather than taking a top-down approach, Secretary Fudge explained that she puts people at the center of all the work she does. Get a deep dive into this no-holds-barred conversation.

We have to find ways to not only preserve housing but to preserve the people who live in that housing. We have to build neighborhoods.

Mainstage Session

Upward Mobility through Wealth Creation

Upward mobility within rentership is an increasingly important conversation. During our 40th Anniversary National Conference, President of Capital and interim co-CEO Lori Chatman led a panel with Dr. Tiffany Manuel, Dan Tangherlini from Emerson Collective, and former U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros. Read more about key session takeaways.

[As a renter] you can also be a long-term resident. You can also build wealth. You can also care about this community and be thoughtful about the stake that you have in it.

Tiffany Manuel, President & CEO, TheCaseMade

Fireside Chat

Power of Government Backing & Private Investment

Enterprise Board Chair Rick Lazio, a former member of Congress, moderated this unique look at the power of government backing and private investment with panelists Sandra Thompson, director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, and former HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan, a senior fellow at the Ford Foundation.

Dive deeper into key highlights from this unique conversation.

We’re locking low-income people and people of color out of places of economic opportunity. It isn't just that housing's not affordable, it's also especially not affordable in the places where people can find the jobs that could transform their lives.
