Many People, One Company

We're committed to diversity. It starts with our executive staff and is reinforced throughout our organization.

Our President and CEO, Daniel J. Loepp, developed the Diversity Leadership Council to be responsible for our staff commitment to diversity. The council is made up of executives from different areas of the organization. They help employees understand diversity and inclusion.

We reinforce our commitment through diversity training. It's essential for our business growth and support of our members.

Our employee resource networks strengthen this commitment. The networks bring together employees who have a common interest. They promote diversity, create professional development opportunities and provide fresh perspectives to make our business better. 

Some of our events that expand cultural awareness are:

  • Diversity expos
  • Heritage month celebrations
  • Panel discussions and seminars

Building Young Talent

We build strong relationships with colleges and professional organizations to recruit diverse talent.

We were the first employer in Wayne County to partner with Project SEARCH to help young adults with disabilities transition from school to work environments.

We have summer internship programs to give college students the opportunity to sharpen their skills and gain real world experience. For example, top minority students from the University of Michigan can learn health care administration in our Summer Enrichment Program
