Tune In: Mackinac Policy Conference Preview and Live Coverage

September 20, 2021
The iconic “Mackinac Policy Conference” will take place September 20 – 23, 2021 and will spotlight three pillars for cultivating a healthy Michigan – with focus to accelerate COVID-19 economic recovery, advance racial equity, and invest in the health of people and communities.

This year marks DPTV’s 11th year of coverage as we provide viewers with access to nearly all of the Conference’s sessions live and make them available for on-demand viewing.

A healthy Michigan also depends on good quality jobs. Kicking off in Mackinac, One Detroit will launch its year-long initiative, The Future of Work. As part of the conference, “One Detroit” anchor Christy McDonald will interview Walgreen’s CEO, Rosalind Brewer about women in leadership. Throughout the week, McDonald, will continue to interview local and national decision-makers on issues that impact viewers’ lives and community including the future of the auto industry, DEI in the workforce, and the healthcare industry.

Featured presenters include CNN Presidential Historian Douglas Brinkley; Rosalind Brewer, CEO of Walgreens; Michael Steele, Former Chairman of the Republican National Committee; Mayor of Detroit Mike Duggan; Governor Gretchen Whitmer; and more.
