Job Posting: Michigan Economic Development Corporation
The public-private partnership agency and economic development corporation that promotes job creation in the state of Michigan is hiring its first DEI Coordinator/Organizational Ombuds. The position "will work collaboratively to coordinate the planning, oversight, and implementation of the diversity, equity and inclusion strategies" and "also serve as the organizational ombuds [for] members of the organization." These collateral duties, of course, are not compatible with IOA standards, which do not permit Ombuds to hold positions that compromise their independence, neutrality, and informality.
