ULI Toronto’s Curtner Urban Leadership Program is an annual curriculum-based program designed to challenge multi-disciplinary emerging industry leaders to work with communities to advance responsible, transformative, and positive city-building. The program is sponsored by Quadrangle in memory of one of its founding partners, Brian L. Curtner and reflects many of his passions, including city building, mentorship and collaboration.
Our mission is to cultivate thought and industry leadership by immersing emerging leaders in the real estate and land use industry in the challenges and opportunities of developing the Greater Golden Horseshoe.
2020-21 Program Overview
Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) is now a forefront consideration of city building internationally. In a recent letter to Toronto Mayor John Tory, Gladki Planning Associates noted “[recent] reflection has allowed us to see the role of our industry in an uncomfortable history of supporting structures of systemic racism in Canada.” And “Current engagement practices can burden or marginalize the voices of racialized communities.” While appropriate in a Planning context, these issues are important to the entire Real Estate industry.
This year’s Curtner Urban Leadership Program will focus on EDI in a planning, land use and development context. Working in teams, participants will lead monthly public sessions focused on identifying challenges and examining solutions. Using input from these sessions as well as their own experiences and research, they will then identify and develop those inclusive actions that can leverage diversity to achieve equity.
