Detroit: Where Young People Make a Difference
Got a tip on an article in Crain’s posted yesterday from the good folks over at I AM YOUNG DETROIT. The message: young Detroiters need to be involved from the ground up on Detroit’s continued success. Vince Keenan with the non-profit Publius says it pretty well:
“There’s an emerging sensibility that we need to change old thinking,” he said. “Not to say there aren’t smart, capable, nimble minds that are over a certain age, (but) we need a broader pool of ideas to pull from on certain issues we face. … Heavy lifting is a job for the young, anyway.”
There you have it.
The rest of the article dances around corporate structures and why boards should be diversifying their membership and that young people can have increasingly more clout and influence in these sorts of arenas.
