Downtown Luncheon Affinity Group for March 10 meeting
The focus of our meetings in 2021 will be on the vitality of the Arts & Culture in Detroit. Not only does it provide a respite from daily crises, it allows us to celebrate women who lead with purpose in diverse settings.
This month we meet:
DeLashea Strawder, Executive & Artistic Director of the internationally acclaimed Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit, has devoted her skill and leadership to inspire and incite a new generation of leaders and advocates for the arts for over a decade. Equally grounded in artistic excellence and arts education Strawder is a sought-after conductor, clinician, and speaker. A champion of arts and culture and its' inherent ability to motivate, empower and mobilize, she is a graduate of Leadership Detroit XLI (2020) and has been recognized for her leadership and community impact as a Comcast 20 under 30 (2011), Detroit Pistons Come Together Foundation Impact Award (2013) and Michigan Chronicle 40 under 40 (2017) awardee.
