Titled – Creating Stronger Communities Through Equality and Conversation, the Forbes interview with Cathy touches on a wide variety of topics.  

The story includes her memories growing up in Birmingham during the 60s and learning from leaders over the years such as Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth and Bishop Desmond Tutu. She also discusses Sloss Real Estate’s mission as an urban development leader in the Magic City.

Here is a passage in the article about Cathy and her company’s mission:

“Cathy’s mission as an urban development leader is to repair our broken societal and governmental systems made to separate people based on income level, race, religion, and more creating better places for everyone to call home.”

As the developer of Park Place downtown and The Market at Pepper Place, Cathy builds relationships by listening to the needs of the community. As a result, over the past two decades both places have blossomed in Birmingham, thanks to conversations and listening.

“It’s time to listen and to educate ourselves…and then have a deeper conversation. It’s really important in healing this country,” said Cathy in the Forbes story.
