Heidi Alcock (center), senior program manager for Detroit Future City, was the keynote speaker at a recent event sponsored by the Women’s Caucus Group at Jaffe, Raitt, Heuer and Weiss in Southfield. Alcock spoke about the organization’s initiatives to reshape Detroit, discussing the “strategic framework that will help a variety of stakeholders – community groups, philanthropy, business entities and economic developers, government, investors, and more – make decisions around a shared vision that improves the quality of life for all in the city.” Her appearance was part of the Wine and Cheese Series that the Women’s Caucus Group holds periodically throughout the year. Jaffe attorneys Judith Greenstone Miller (left) and Jennifer Oertel (right) also spoke at the event, discussing the Detroit bankruptcy and working with tax-exempt organizations and social enterprises.
