Local Organizations Addressing DEI; Other Local Business News

July 6, 2022

Per a survey from the global human resources association WorldatWork, 83 percent of organizations reported that they took action on Diversity, Equity & Inclusiveness (DEI) initiatives in 2021 – 29 percent of them for the first time ever. That trend is beginning to take hold locally, as Traverse City has seen some of its first dedicated DEI positions taking form in the past two years. Hagerty, Oryana, Commongrounds, Northwestern Michigan College, and Aspire North Realtors are just a few of those with positions dedicated to such efforts.

In this month's Traverse City Business News (TCBN), read how professionals from many of those organizations say DEI is taking root locally and what could mean for the future of workplaces in the area.

The July TCBN also includes features on some major technology investments at Munson Healthcare, a look at area companies investing in green technology, a profile of the innovating being done at Novello Health, a showcase of some of the most prominent "number twos" -- those just behind local CEOs -- and much more.
