For more than 20 years, Michigan Economic Development Corporation has been investing in Michigan’s businesses and communities, enabling the growth of good jobs and promoting Michigan’s strong image worldwide in order to achieve long-term economic prosperity for all Michiganders.
At MEDC our goal is to have a multigenerational, multiracial, and multibackground workforce with a broad range of values, beliefs, experiences, preferences, and behaviors.
This includes a workforce that represents a full spectrum of similarities and differences – race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, educational attainment, age, socio-economic status, health status, national origin, political beliefs, family composition, marital or relationship status, viewpoints, values, and opinions. Diversity is essential to our ability to thrive and succeed.
Inclusion is the cultural and environmental feeling of belonging. It is the degree to which employees feel valued, respected, accepted, and encouraged to fully participate at MEDC.
It is MEDC's responsibility to collectively support an environment to where employees feel appreciated for unique characteristics and feel comfortable in sharing their ideas and aspects of their true authentic selves. It is an environment where opportunities in the areas of recruitment and hiring, promotional practices, leadership and professional development are defined to encourage all employees to fully engage to their fullest potential with MEDC.
