Growing Michigan’s millennial workforce with Let’s Detroit ambassador Marjace Miles

Millennials make up the largest share of the U.S. workforce — the generation is expected to make up 75% of the global workforce by 2025 — and the future of work in Michigan will depend upon keeping young professionals here. So, how can business leaders and key stakeholders convince millennials to plant their roots in Michigan? 

Let’s Detroit ambassador Marjace Miles

One Detroit producer and Future of Work host Will Glover sat down with Marjace Miles of Let’s Detroit, who works within Ford Motor Company’s Marketing Leadership Program, about millennial migration trends in the workforce and his efforts to attract more young professional millennials to Michigan. 


They talk about Miles’ personal journey and what made him choose to stay in Michigan after college, as well as his ambassador work with Let’s Detroit helping to attract young professionals to Detroit for the long term. Plus, they discuss the misconceptions many non-Michigan residents may have about the state and how businesses in the state can invest in and attract millennials to Michigan’s workforce.
