Detroit Retreat

The BLI Peace Leadership Retreat in Detroit

2024 Theme: Utilizing Technology for Social Good

Today’s leaders must contend with many challenges locally and globally. As a community of leaders, we have identified several interrelated challenges that we want BLI students to contemplate, collaborate, and engage with. We believe building capacity in these areas will prepare Michigan students to be effective leaders who address these BIG questions with grace and humility.  Our 2024 theme for the Social Transformation Fellows and the Detroit Retreat is Utilizing Technology for Social Good.

During this retreat, we will hear from leaders who have made Detroit their home and learn how they contribute to their communities and use technology to make a lasting social impact. The retreat will feature leadership learning visits to iconic Detroit institutions (like The Henry Ford--including the Ford Rouge Factory--Cliff Bell's Jazz Club, and Detroit's Eastern Market) unique-to-Detroit restaurants, and engaging group activities and reflections.
