Marshall Seminar on Leading Through Transition Towards Global Engagement
On July 18, 2013, the city of Detroit filed for Chapter 9 Bankruptcy--the largest municipal filing in U.S. history. Sixteen months later, a coalition—including retired city workers, major philanthropic foundations, the state government, and the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA)—came together to form “the grand bargain”, pledging millions of dollars to move the city of Detroit out of the red and into the future. Detroit’s path from bankruptcy to newly regained solvency, as well as its thriving creative economy that is attracting global attention, is a testament to the power of civic leadership, cross-sectoral coalitions, and strategic global engagement.
Join GMF’s fifth Marshall Seminar to examine leadership insights into how to lead change in your city or organization. The seminar will convene American and European alumni of GMF’s transatlantic leadership initiatives in Detroit from September 21 to 23 to explore strategies to build powerful coalitions; achieve inclusive growth; inspire creative breakthroughs; reinvent one’s image and brand; and leverage global trends and networks for sustainable success.
The Marshall Seminar on Leading through Transition towards Global Engagement is available at a non-refundable tuition fee of $600, which covers all seminar activities and meals, as well as a four to five star hotel accommodation. Participants are responsible for their own transport to and from the seminar.
