Human Resources

CTI is designed to be the bridge between diversity, equity, and inclusion work, human resources, and the rest of The Michigan Daily. The Organizational arm focuses access and inclusion within the newsroom and works to build an inclusive culture from multiple angles. As a member of the Organizational Committee, you will work on initiatives to create a positive workplace environment, increase professional development opportunities, and manage workplace conflict. This role will provide real world insight into human resources and DEI. This position is open to Daily staffers, as well as those who do not have prior experience with The Daily, who are passionate about the intersection of DEI and the workplace. Organizational committee members are paid and report directly to the Organizational Chair. This role requires attendance at weekly meetings and independent and/or team work throughout the semester. The application closes September 16, 2022 at 11:59 pm. If you have any questions, please reach out to Akshara Koottala at akshara@umich.edu or Jojo Rubin at julrubin@umich.edu with any questions. We look forward to reading your application!

This position is closed. Please check back next semester to apply.


Culture, Training and Inclusion

Culture, Training & Inclusion works to create a diverse, inclusive newsroom and bridge the gap between the paper’s staff and the communities we serve. CTI has two different goals: Coverage, which evaluates The Daily’s product and conducts outreach to the communities we cover, and Organizational, which focuses on internal staff culture and development. CTI is central to The Daily’s goals of having diversity, equity and inclusion at the forefront of our workforce, culture and coverage.
