Leadership Detroit Update

Over the past 41 years, more than 2,000 leaders have grown through Leadership Detroit. It is a valuable asset to the community that builds leaders by creating awareness of key issues and bringing about positive change.

As a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic, it is clear “social distancing” will be with us for quite a while, the Detroit Regional Chamber has come to the conclusion that the experience that makes Leadership Detroit incredibly valuable to the Detroit region is something that cannot be delivered through a digital environment.

As an organization, the Chamber has made the decision to not host any large events for at least the rest of 2020. This is an extremely tough call to make, but one that is necessary, given the expected restrictions from government health guidelines and the corporate policies they will drive.

Leadership Detroit, which relies heavily on the in-person experience as well as the close bond among cohorts, will pause the application process for LD Class XLII. The Chamber will continue to monitor guidance from health experts and determine the right time to restart recruitment efforts.

As we look forward, we realize that there is an immediate need to address racial injustice and achieving equity in the region, something Leadership Detroit has built into its foundation. Leadership Detroit Senior Director of the program, Dan Piepszowski, will stay on to lead these efforts for the Chamber. We look forward to engaging you in this effort.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we join you in working through this period of history in the making.
