Growth shouldn’t be a dirty word. Equity can’t be a pipe-dream. As Midwestern cities power towards revitalization and expansion, what lessons can be learned to build an inclusive future that encourages opportunity for all? This session explores some of the strategies Michigan's communities employ to improve outcomes for segments of the population that traditional economic development programs disproportionately overlook.
