A workshop focusing on how the transition to digital has made rapid, data-driven decision making a critical component in marketing, business, and government will be held at Eastern Michigan University on Friday, Nov. 15. The Digital Marketing workshop, based on the theme, “The Speed of Change,” will feature Garlin Gilchrist, Lieutenant Governor of Michigan, as the opening keynote speaker. Lt. Gov. Gilchrist served as a social media manager for the Obama campaign and Director of National Campaigns for MoveOn.org before returning to Detroit as its first-ever Director of Innovation & Emerging Technology. He will share his vision for using public data and technology to address the pressing concerns of our state, in a talk entitled “The Best Digital Isn’t Digital.” Speakers from Google, LawnGuru, Hyperion Coffee, Dynamo Metrics, and many more will provide actionable insights for harnessing “The Speed of Change” in a business or organization. Jenn Hayman, Director of Marketing for Zingerman's, will close the day with a panel on "The Marriage of Data, Branding, and Marketing". You can sign up for the workshop at the registration web page. There is an early registration date of Oct 31. The early rate of $50 buys breakfast and lunch as well as all the day's content. Breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. and the program will begin promptly at 8 a.m. The workshop is hosted by the EMU Center for Digital Engagement and its director, professor Bud Gibson. Gibson led the establishment of the center at Eastern Michigan in 2015. With the generous support of Ann Arbor SPARK and the College of Business, the CDE currently sponsors the Digital Marketing Workshop and a monthly breakfast series.

**Without making the kind of fights that might have stopped it, American workers have seen the standard of living of their whole class pushed down. **And auto workers seemed to lead the retreat. Jobs were lost. Full-time jobs were replaced by part-time and temporary, or pushed to sub-contractors. Wages were cut. Different "tiers" of wages were introduced, preventing newer workers from ever reaching the level older workers once had. **The conditions of work -- with longer hours and greater intensity of work -- translated into an actual decrease in life expectancy. ** It almost seemed as though auto workers, the heart of the working class, had forgotten how to fight. **Well GM workers showed there are some who remembered, and many more of them discovered what you can do when you decide to fight. Workers from Ford and FCA and from many other workplaces, who were pulled to GM picket lines, discovered what solidarity is. **So now, who will be the next? Who will take the road GM workers laid?
