Auburn Hills, MI – On Wednesday, June 13, 2012, the Leadership Oakland Class of XXII will sponsor “Moving Forward 2012: A Career Conference for Young Adults.” This will be an inspirational and educational experience for Southeastern Michigan’s future workforce. The full day conference is designed to expose 18-24 year old young adults to some of the region's most dynamic leaders and allow them to learn from some of the area’s top talent.
“Although there are several great programs and opportunities in the area, there are many young adults who are unaware or not the right age to benefit from them. By providing a regional conference and premier access to participants, we will set the ground work for moving them into the bright futures they deserve HERE in Michigan,” Kiesha Speech, LOXXII class member and Marketing Committee Chair for the event.
Included in the day are informative workshops that are designed to equip participants for success in the workplace, a networking lunch where they will be connected to industry professionals from “emerging sector” careers, and a keynote presentation by Victor Green, Director of Community Relations at Wayne State University. A laptop and other items will be given away during a prize drawing at the event.
“Moving Forward” will be held on Wednesday, June 13, 2012 in the Student Center at Baker College of Auburn Hills, 1500 University Dr., Auburn Hills, MI 48326.
