March is a refreshing month. It’s also a positive time because Women’s History Month in Detroit 2022 showcases the artistic history of women while educating the next generation of women business leaders worldwide. With so many events going virtual over the years, it’s easier than ever to stay educated on what people are discussing in your community.
