(DEIJ) are core values of MNA. We are firmly committed to influencing change, confronting inequities and racism, and breaking down barriers for marginalized communities throughout Michigan.
Our board and staff are dedicated to realizing an equitable, diverse, and inclusive nonprofit sector promoting DEIJ practices and building stronger communities.
As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said in his famous ‘I Have a Dream’ speech, “We will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.” And the fight for justice continues. The MNA board and staff are dedicated to realizing its vision of an equitable, diverse, and inclusive nonprofit sector that embraces and promotes DEIJ practices that lead to building stronger communities.
We have long prioritized DEI (diversity, equity, inclusion) at Michigan Nonprofit Association, but in 2019, prior to the brutal murder of Mr. George Floyd that sparked the largest racial justice protests in history, we added justice to our core values. And little did we know at the time how important it would be for us to solidify that value. Following the deaths of Mr. Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others, we knew that we had to double down on our work to address racial inequality. Today, we are more committed than ever before to confronting ingrained systemic racism with action.
We are committed to fostering an inclusive and collaborative environment where MNA team members can be their authentic selves and reach their full potential. Our team is stronger together because we hire great people from a variety of backgrounds. We know that diverse perspectives lead to better solutions, and we actively seek a diverse staff. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, citizenship, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status. Please check MNA’s Job Center for a list of the current openings.
MNA mobilized nonprofits to achieve fair impartial district maps for Michigan- specifically to promote racial equity so that communities of color have a voice and are not locked out of the important decision making that happens at the local, state and federal levels.
