About the Summit

In April 2018, in Detroit, Michigan, anthropologists came together from around the world, representing many career stages and types of employment.  The intent, to explore the state of business anthropology and to plan for its future. Anthropologists who attended the event were party to setting the parameters for discussion during the four months before the Summit. Key concerns were consolidated: how people practice business anthropology, how the marketplace is responding to the value of anthropology, and how to prepare future generations. The echo of a reinvented Detroit was felt across the Summit.
