The Power of & podcast debuted on Wednesday, June 14, inspired by the theme of the 2023 Mackinac Policy Conference. Its first episode, recorded on Mackinac Island, featured Matt Elliott, Chair of the 2023 Mackinac Policy Conference and President of Bank of America Michigan, as well as Renee Tabben, President of Bank of America Grand Rapids. Hosted by Brad Williams, Vice President of Government Relations at the Detroit Regional Chamber, the conversation focused on defining what it means to take an “and” approach to policy and how Elliott and Tabben would like to see Michigan’s business leaders interpret the strategy in their offices.
About the Power of &
The Power of & Podcast focuses on reaching solutions to modern-day policy problems utilizing the power of “and.” Instead of deciding between two solutions with the same end goal, this podcast brings together policymakers to discuss their political similarities instead of their differences. With hosts from the Detroit Regional Chamber’s Government Relations team, you can expect to hear from a wide variety of thought leaders on how to solve deadlock in politics.
