Over the past few years, CSW has been engaging in deep facilitation and partnership building work in Detroit. This report, published and edited by the Detroit Regional Workforce Fund and authored by CSW’s Michael DiRamio and Tammy Coxen, tells the story of the diverse partnerships focused on creating pathways to careers in a range of industries and occupations of the growing green economy. It demonstrates the impressive results that new community-based partnerships have been able to achieve in the industrial heartland. These efforts have helped to place a large number of disadvantaged residents of Metro Detroit in careers, despite stiff competition for jobs in this region.
