Equal Opportunity


The Michigan National Guard (MING) will provide Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) for civilians in technician status (Title 5 and Title 32) and Equal Opportunity (EO) for Soldiers and Airmen in military status. Our mission is to ensure applicants for membership in the MING will not be subject to illegal discrimination. All MING personnel are entitled to serve in an environment free from discrimination and sexual harassment.

Our Mission

This mission coincides directly with the Department of Defense Office of Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Who We Are

MING provides equal employment opportunity in Federal employment regardless of race, color, gender, national origin, religion, age, disability, and sexual orientation. Diversity is an integral part of every mission and its goals; we will use diversity as a model for helping to identify and develop the best talent, create effective teams and achieve excellence.

Our Goals
The changing face of Michigan and the Nation demands that we change as a military employer. As the demographic make-up of the population continues to evolve, it is imperative that the Michigan National Guard focus its efforts on emerging talent to ensure that we successfully attract, recruit, develop and retain a highly-skilled Total Force capable of meeting current and future mission requirements.

Allegations of discrimination and sexual harassment will be given prompt attention and resolved as expeditiously as possible The MING is committed to equal opportunity and appreciation of diversity through policies, programs and activities that promote sensitivity and accommodations for all people. Equal opportunity in employment means opportunity not just for some but for all. Please see our Equal Employment Opportunity documents for more information.
