Ten years ago, in 2013, Detroit was facing arguably one of its hardest situations yet: bankruptcy. In the last decade, however, the city’s downtown has rebounded and revitalized itself, and in the grand scheme of things, for some city officials and key stakeholders, Detroit’s resurgence is just getting started. 

Detroiters will have a chance to learn more about upcoming efforts to build a more equitable and prosperous future for downtown Detroit at the Detroit Regional Chamber’s 2023 Detroit Policy Conference. The conference will be hosted Jan. 10 at Motor City Casino Hotel, featuring notable speakers like Detroit Regional Chamber President & CEO Sandy K. Baruah, Bedrock LLC CEO Kofi Bonner, City of Detroit Director of Planning and Development Antoine Bryant, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, Michigan Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist II, “American Black Journal” host Stephen Henderson and several others. 

Covering the conference through the lens of our Future of Work initiative, One Detroit contributors Nolan Finley, of the Detroit News, and Henderson sit down with Baruah about this year’s conference theme and the conversations policymakers will have there.
