Local First AZ Director Kimber Lanning Talks Placemaking, Land Use on Urban Land Institute Podcast
The Urban Land Institute (ULI) has launched a new podcast series, Leading Voices with ULI, which offers untold personal stories from the most innovative leaders in the real estate and land use industries. The series, announced today, provides a candid look at members’ leadership journeys, obstacles they have overcome, and personal reflections that are rarely examined.
The new podcast series, produced by the ULI Leadership Network, exposes listeners to a side of the guests not normally seen in panel discussions and other public events. Specifically, the series examines how guests’ upbringing, social experiences, and other factors have shaped who they are both professionally and personally.
The podcast series will be hosted by ULI Foundation Governor Matt Slepin, founder of San Francisco–based Terra Search Partners, a national executive search firm helping real estate companies build successful teams. Slepin serves on the board of ULI’s San Francisco’s District Council and is a member of the ULI’s Urban Development and Mixed-Use Council. He has nearly 40 years of experience in search, management, and functional roles within the real estate industry.
Local First Arizona Founder and Executive Director Kimber Lanning is one of seven people from across the nation being featured in this podcast series. In her podcast, Kimber discusses her challenges in being a local business owner, what led her to founding Local First Arizona, how placemaking is critical to healthy communities, and her passion for Arizona.
Listeners can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or find episodes at uli.org/leadingvoices. You can listen to Kimber's podcast by clicking here.
Episodes in the Leading Voices with ULI podcast series will be made available to the general public only for a limited time. Each new episode will be available for public download for a select number of weeks before being moved to ULI member–only access.
