Event description

Description

The Refuel Roadtrip is back! We're taking Black and Brown leaders to Flint for a day of learning and laughter. We've incorporated your feedback from last year and even consulted with area natives to ensure we're visiting Flints' tops spots and bringing you the best experience possible.


Why a Refuel Roadtrip?

Our Refuel Roadtrips provide Black and Brown difference makers with opportunities to ‘just be’, unpack stressors and struggles of workplace life in West MI, enjoy dedicated time in community with kinfolks and glean professional development to support ongoing excellence in our respective industries and spheres of influence. Not only will you have the chance to refuel and recharge on this trip, but you'll also grow your professional knowledge and networks.

Learn more about what to expect and the benefits of the Roadtrip experience from two of last year's attendees here.
