Have your voice heard! Just ONE week left for “Getting to Work” Community Conversations

Beginning in December, the Center for Michigan’s public engagement team has been traveling the state to facilitate Community Conversations about jobs and workforce development. These discussions, titled “Getting to work: Opportunity and hurdles to success in Michigan,” have gathered more than 2,500 people in more than 60 cities across our state to date.
