Real estate development impacts all of our daily lives and shapes the communities around us. Recognizing the responsibility that comes with being a builder and developer, Daniels President & CEO, Mitchell Cohen, believes that we can build inclusive, resilient communities through collaboration and partnership, with all sectors working together to realize a shared vision.

On October 28th, 2021 Mitchell shared his journey to bring that vision to life in A Beautiful Composition: How Real Estate Development Can Drive Positive Change presented by Brookfield Centre in Real Estate and Infrastructure, Schulich School of Business, York University. Mitchell was introduced by long-time friend and colleague Tim Jones, former CEO of Artscape and Principal at Creative Placemaking Inc. Following Mitchell’s address he joined Tim for a deeper conversation on the concepts behind the event’s theme and an audience Q&A. Proceeds generated from this year’s Perspectives Lecture benefited the newly created SRPAA Leadership Fund for Black and Indigenous Communities.
