Quick Facts

 At all levels, our Urban Leaders Circle Sponsors bring Detroit’s strongest corporate leaders to the same table with leaders in state and local government, education, and national and community organizations to discuss forward-thinking solutions to real-world issues.  Together, we will face the very tangible evidence of a global economy and its impact on communities, businesses and education.  We’ll strategize how urban leadership can steer these important issues in a positive direction and we’ll continuously frame the ways that our education system needs to develop strong leaders for future sustainability.

Beyond an active voice as a member of the Urban Leaders Circle, our Urban Leaders Circle Sponsors will realize a robust set of benefits that ensure a credible return on their investment.  These are listed below.
