Started less than a year ago, this wildly successful new program is already effectively shining a spotlight on the wonderful things Detroit has to offer for young professionals. LiveWorkDetroit had its first event in March 2011. With a goal of promoting the,(often overlooked) live, work and play opportunities for young professionals, the organizers set up an on-campus program which, ultimately, recruited 84 student ambassadors on 19 campuses.
Since then, over 2400 college students have participated in the program with the vast majority indicating that they have benefited by gaining a major increase in their awareness of opportunities for themselves and their peers in the Detroit community.
Join the show tonight as executive coach and CEO, of Focused Coaching, LLC, Lisa Pasbjerg, interviews Jacqui Mieksztyn and Jeanette Pierce, two of the energetic people leading this exciting new program, about why it matters to Michigan and what it can teach all of us. Listen in as they discuss their passion to continue to grow the burgeoning young professional community in Detroit, to showcase the many jewels Detroit has to offer and to facilitate the discovery process for the many young people coming out of our colleges seeking a great place to live, work and play.
