We are committed to diversity and inclusion by providing a place to work where each person is respected, honored, supported and is rewarded on the basis of personal and professional achievement and contribution. We believe that diversity and inclusion helps create relationships and inspire innovation.
Diversity encompasses such factors as age, sexual preference, gender, race, ethnicity, ability, and religion, as well as education, professional background, and marital and parental status. Diversity is recognizing differences and similarities, relative uniqueness of each individual in the population including experience, background, opinion and lifestyle that makes each of us unique. At Michigan First, we consider it favorable as variety increases.
Inclusion is the process of leveraging the power of differences and similarities to achieve a common goal. We strive to develop an inclusive environment where diversity of thought, style, culture, skill sets and perspective is valued and celebrated in support of individual performance and potential, as well as our business goals and mission. We feel our commitment to diversity and inclusion strengthens our company and sets us apart from our competition.
