Please join us on Thursday, Jan 25th, as we kick off the first 2024 "Real Talk" roundtable discussion. Let's show up strong and in solidarity to support all efforts to level the playing field and build capacity for future opportunities that await us!

This series is intended to be a safe and inclusive platform for Detroit contractors, industry design-build partners, and providers. Please bring a few contractors with you!
