Today, the Detroit Regional Chamber announced the participants in Leadership Detroit Class XLII, a six-month transformational leadership program designed to challenge emerging and existing leaders from Southeast Michigan to bring about positive change. View the Class XLII roster here.

“We are excited to be back with Leadership Detroit Class XLII. This program offers a unique experience that takes leaders on a journey out of their comfort zones to challenge long-held assumptions and to embrace multiple and diverse perspectives on quality-of-life issues in the Detroit region,” said Dan Piepszowski, senior director of Community Leadership Development at the Detroit Regional Chamber. “Change is inevitable, as we have experienced in the past two years. The leaders that will best manage change and seize the opportunities that lie beneath the surface are those who are emotionally intelligent and can tap into the passion and concerns of others. Real changemakers not only inspire others but, they lean in and choose to walk with us down new paths.”

Class XLII features 60 executives from across the Detroit region, 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.
