Title:America's Comeback City? Understanding Detroit's Workforce Profile and Development Initiatives by Mayor's Workforce Development Board
Author(s):Kulkarni, Tejashree
Contributor(s):Doussard, Marc
Subject(s):workforce development
Geographic Coverage:Detroit, Michigan
Abstract:The city of Detroit has faced bankruptcy, housing crisis and has been losing its population steadily since 2000. Most recovery efforts focus on infrastructural growth rather than workforce development. For Detroit and its residents to effectively benefit from these infrastructural improvements, concerted efforts need to be made for labor force inclusion and skill development. This report is divided into three sections: 1) explores the workforce characteristics - skills, education and demographic; 2) discusses the current industry mix and requirements of the job market; and 3) discusses the ongoing and proposed economic development programs in Detroit, in general and three programs undertaken by the Mayor's Workforce Development Board in specific.
