“I’m looking forward to another one-of-a-kind program year with the 44th Leadership Detroit class. These exceptional individuals will embark on a unique journey outside their comfort zones to challenge long-held assumptions and to embrace diverse perspectives on quality-of-life issues in the Detroit Region,” said Devon O’Reilly, Senior Director of Community Engagement and Leadership Development. “Through carefully curated sessions, this class will have an opportunity to better connect with each other, hear directly from experts across multiple sectors, and enhance the intangible skills that will make them more impactful leaders.” 

Leadership Detroit 44 features nearly 75 executives, representing a cross-section of the community, including business, organized labor, government, education, media, civic groups, health services, and community organizations. 

Leadership Detroit provides opportunities for participants to foster and spark problem-solving discussions while providing new views on key issues to foster regional social and economic progress. As it has since 1979, Leadership Detroit will continue its role in creating an environment of more informed leadership for the Detroit Region.
