Who we are

The Center for Michigan is a well-funded, financially-stable, nonprofit news organization that is committed to helping its employees produce the best work of their career. We support our team with training, mentorships, and opportunities for professional development.

As a nonprofit news organization, we use the best parts of legacy media but are not beholden to all traditions. We are aggressively nonpartisan, ardent challengers of conventional wisdom in our work, and committed to lifting up diverse, often ignored voices and covering the state in an equitable manner.

We pride ourselves on being a workplace that is supportive and allows great ideas to flourish. We try to have a culture of ‘yes,’ and are deeply committed to work-life balance so our team can have a healthy life outside work.

Our hiring values and priorities

The Center for Michigan is an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity and building an inclusive environment for our staff. We especially encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply and welcome qualified applicants of all races, ethnicities, ages, physical abilities, gender identities and sexual orientations, and educational backgrounds.

Diversity, equity and inclusion

The Center for Michigan seeks to reflect the diversity of the communities we serve in our work. However, we believe that as an organization we are still on the journey of getting this “right.” We are currently working with an outside leadership consultant to conduct DEI and management training, and implement a staff expansion plan, driven by diversity and equity at its center. While the organization’s journey is in progress, The Center’s commitment to reflecting the experience of all Michigan residents remains unchanged and is a central tenet of The Center’s hiring and reporting strategy.


EQUAL OPPORTUNITY

The Center is an equal opportunity employer. We pledge equal opportunity for all our employees and applicants. Consequently, all individual employment decisions will be based on the individual’s qualifications, performance, and effort. The Center does not discriminate against employees or applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability/handicap, height, weight, marital status, familial status, veteran status, or citizenship. The Center will, however, hire only those individuals who are legally authorized to work in the United States.
