Talent Outlook: Detroit Drives Degrees
Join leaders from the higher education, business, government and nonprofit and philanthropic sectors for the Detroit Regional Chamber’s Talent Outlook: Detroit Drives Degrees breakfast.
How can Detroit cultivate homegrown talent to drive prosperity and opportunity? People are the region’s most important asset, but Southeast Michigan is falling behind in developing, retaining and attracting future leaders. Our future economic success — in an environment in which nearly two-thirds of jobs will require post-secondary credentials by 2025 — will depend on boosting educational attainment and promoting greater equity.
The program will feature perspectives from the private and public sector, and highlight work the Detroit Drives Degrees (D3) initiative is doing in the region to strengthen the talent pipeline and meet the growing demands of employers. In addition, David Dodson, president of MDC will deliver a keynote address on how educational attainment rates directly relate to opportunity and social mobility in a region.
