Our Mission

The mission of the MIDC is to enhance the appreciation for and understanding of the value of diversity and inclusion in the workplace. We serve as a resource for businesses seeking to develop their diversity and inclusion efforts and provide ongoing learning and best practice-sharing opportunities which:

  • Advance corporate leadership, education and awareness of the varied dimensions of diversity
  • Commit professionals to discuss issues, challenge attitudes and promote organizational change that supports diversity
  • Encourage a diverse Michigan talent pool through outreach efforts that connect youth entering the workforce with businesses

By cultivating the unique talents, experiences and backgrounds of current and future employees, Michigan businesses will be seen as leaders in the global marketplace, and our state will be regarded as a great place to live and work.

The NDC and the MIDC are member-driven organizations. Programming, events and publications are developed and led by member companies/individuals.
