Detroit Retreat - March 2019


In most stories of individual leadership development there is a moment where someone - a mentor, a boss, a friend - opens a door. We hope to give select Michigan students, our BLI fellows, just these kinds of chances. Access to real unvarnished examples of leadership allows students to begin to make sense of the complex tasks and skills contemporary leaders must bring to bear on the world.

We're excited to share details about our 2019 BLI Retreat, where we returned to Detroit to explore leadership in action!

This year's theme was "Start Small. Dream Big!" and we explored what it means to fulfill goals that address larger issues by taking them one small step at a time. The retreat featured visits to iconic Detroit institutions like the Motown Museum and Eastern Market, plus engaging speakers and activities to reflect on felloe's experiences! See what we did at the itinerary below!
