Chicago, IL – March 23, 2024 – C3 Impact Fund, a certified community development financial institution, announced the launch of the Women in Real Estate Mentorship Program. This groundbreaking initiative is designed to empower women navigating the complex field of real estate investing. The program aligns with C3’s foundational goals to catalyze development in underinvested neighborhoods, create quality local jobs, and close the racial and gender wealth gaps through real estate.

“The Women in Real Estate Mentorship Program is more than just a workshop. It’s a commitment to creating a level playing field for women,” stated Tiffany Taylor, Executive Director of C3. “By equipping participants with the necessary tools and networks, we’re building opportunities, not just buildings, and creating a future where everyone has a stake.”

With the support of generous sponsors, ten women have been selected from a competitive application pool. Each participant will receive mentorship from seasoned investors, engage in hands-on property visits, participate in bi-weekly virtual discussions, and have access to advisors to discuss wealth management and tax-saving strategies.

“We are intentional about not just creating another training program. We also provide participants with access to capital to fund their next deal and resources to manage their capital gains,” added Aloni Harris, Loan Officer at C3.

Since its inception, C3 has originated $50 million in loans, generating 470 units of housing in low to moderate-income communities. Zena Dixon, a program participant, shared, “Most women investors, including myself, often shy away from asking questions and lack a space to speak freely about our challenges. I’m excited to be part of a community dedicated to women, taught by actual practitioners!”

C3’s comprehensive approach ensures that each participant gains the industry knowledge and skills necessary to confidently execute their next real estate projects. “Many women are often taken advantage of in this space,” noted Dajuan Robinson, CEO of DNA Construction & Consulting. “I created the Real in Rehab Mentorship program to inform their decisions as they evaluate, negotiate, and manage their real estate business.”

Together, C3 Impact Fund and DNA Construction & Consulting are paving the way for a new generation of female leaders in the real estate industry.
