And yes, this is for a girl. Staying with her not an option right now

Airbnb probably . Would try to work something out with a host for a deal

My budget is screwed

City of Detroit or burbs? Hotels are pretty cheap if a HGI in Southfield or the like is logistically feasible

DE&I is now a core leadership competency. If you are managing diverse talent, it’s important to understand what the term “privilege” means within a DE&I context so you can lead your team to higher levels of inclusivity+develop optimal strategies for solutioning around team issues/challenges. Everyone has some aspect of privilege depending upon the context. Privilege means the absence of obstacles/barriers, not necessarily the presence of perks. Though some would say *that* itself is a perk.
