Dave Bing Says Mentoring Takes Time and Effort, But is Worth it

Focus:HOPE honors three prominent Metro Detroiters for their contributions to social justice Friday night. The human rights group will present its “Heroes for Hope” awards to retired Congressman John Dingell, former General Motors CEO Lloyd Reuss, and former Detroit Mayor Dave Bing. The award recognizes Bing for hiring disadvantaged minorities to work for his company. The former mayor tells WDET’s Pat Batcheller he employed more than a thousand people since starting the Bing Group almost 30 years ago.
