About the Speakers:

Louise Carroll is the Commissioner of the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), the nation's largest municipal housing agency. As Commissioner, Louise leads the charge to implement Mayor Bill de Blasio's five-borough, ten year Housing New York plan, which was accelerated and expanded through Housing New York 2.0 to create and preserve 300,000 affordable homes by 2026. Louise was instrumental to both the design and implementation of the City’s path-breaking Mandatory Inclusionary Housing Program to require the creation of permanently affordable housing as part of residential rezonings, and streamlined and revamped the agency’s approach to the Voluntary Inclusionary Housing program to produce record numbers of affordable homes.

Tim Davis has been the Housing Policy Manager at the Boston Planning & Development Agency since 2015. Tim has worked in the housing field since 1993, working with a non-profit community development corporation, for the City of Boston, and as an independent research and policy consultant. Tim holds a B.A. in Geography and Urban Studies from Macalester College, and an M.P.A. from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.

Nicole Swerhun (Moderator) recognizes that the public interest is in a constant state of flux as relationships between different powers and interests evolve over time. Fifteen years ago she founded Swerhun Inc., a firm that helps connect public sector decision makers to the constituencies they serve. The Swerhun team designs and delivers public consultation processes that make complex, often controversial and high profile, multi-stakeholder projects constructive and manageable. They create processes that get information flowing between all those involved, address issues people care about, and demonstrate how different perspectives and priorities influence the end result. Nicole has led the design and delivery of hundreds of public consultation projects, including work in post-war Bosnia, post-Katrina New Orleans, and in cities across Canada and the US.
