Detroit Regional Chamber Announces Leadership Detroit Class XXXVIII

DETROIT, September 15, 2016 – The Detroit Regional Chamber today announced the participants in Leadership Detroit Class XXXVIII, a 10-month transformational leadership program designed to challenge emerging and existing leaders from Southeast Michigan to bring about positive change.

“Real change is fueled by leaders who inspire us to choose new paths and who are willing to bring those pathways into reality,” said Dan Piepszowski, senior director of community leadership development at the Detroit Regional Chamber. “Our ability to improve the quality of life in the region relies on a clear understanding that leadership is an ongoing activity that calls us to be creative, ingenious and committed to hard work. The Leadership Detroit experience reinforces that understanding by taking leaders out of their comfort zones to challenge long-held assumptions, embrace multiple perspectives, and connect them to a shared passion for the region.”

Class XXXVIII features 70 executives from across seven Southeast Michigan counties 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 lead the region to success. As it has since 1979, Leadership Detroit will continue its role in addressing, discussing and leading conversations important to the Detroit region. A complete Leadership Detroit Class XXXVIII roster is available online at https://www.detroitchamber.com/ld/current-class.
