ULI SF is proud to announce our partnership with the Construction Industry Workforce Initiative (CIWI) to build a diverse pipeline of talented students to the real estate development profession. As part of this partnership, ULI SF will provide complimentary memberships to CIWI’s 2021 Internship Cohort, direct $10,000 in donations from our corporate donors to fund an intern at a Local Business Enterprise (LBE), engage our EDI committee to help create content specific programming for the interns, and actively market the opportunity to host an intern at your company.

What is CIWI?
The Construction Industry and Workforce Initiative (CIWI), is a young adult workforce program targeted to first generation/students of color (aged 18-21 +/- years) enrolled in a two- to four- year college program. CIWI’s program consists of a three-month internship from June-August as well as numerous opportunities to network, gain greater understanding of the Bay Area real estate and construction industry, and make new friends and future business contacts.
CIWI Internship Component
CIWI provides paid construction industry internship positions at real estate and construction firms. Typically, interns work on tasks such as document review and control, building/maintaining databases, and conducting due diligence/market analysis.
