Diversity Equity and Inclusion

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) division develops and provides education, training, and resources designed to increase cultural competency at a personal, interpersonal, organizational, and structural level. The DEI Division can collaborate with nonprofit organizations, businesses, and state or local agencies to operationalize DEI principles and practices. In January 2018, MDCR was the first state agency to establish an equity office in the state of Michigan.

The division also hosts a Native American Specialist who works with State of Michigan tribal liaisons and tribal leaders to establish meaningful connections with tribal nations throughout the state.
