Institute of Music (FIM) in the search for a Director, Human
Resources Diversity and Inclusion.
Reporting to the Director of Finance and Administration, the Director, Human Resources Diversity and Inclusion will be the Institute's first dedicated human resources position following a complete organizational restructuring that has created new divisions, departments, and positions across the institution. This restructuring effort will create a structure that will foster and reward collaboration and coordination across all departments to fulfill the promise of programmatic integration and build internal capacity for excellence in administrative support functions and program delivery. The Director will play a key role in FIM’s ability to fully realize this new integrated organizational model. The Director will be responsible for revitalizing and implementing all aspects of FIM’s personnel policies and practices. Moreover, the Director will operationalize the organization’s efforts to attract, retain, advance, and support a broadly diverse workforce and support a respectful, inclusive, and equitable workplace culture.
Flint Institute of Music is undergoing an exciting organizational change with the recent consolidation of The James H. Whiting Auditorium and the Capitol Theatre. It sees this as an opportunity to prioritize, as essential, its work to build an organization that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive in hiring practices, volunteer leadership development, employee engagement and community programming, education and outreach. Everyone at FIM is actively participating in this effort.
Flint Institute of Music changes lives through a lifelong continuum of world-class music, dance, and theatre. Since its founding in 1971, Flint Institute of Music has sought to bring the best in arts entertainment and education to Flint and the surrounding area. Comprised of the Flint Symphony Orchestra, Flint School of Performing Arts, and Flint Repertory Theatre, the FIM touches the lives of more than 300,000 individuals each year through concerts, performances, and lessons.
The Flint Symphony Orchestra is one of the finest orchestras of its size in the nation. Its rich 104-year history as a cultural icon in the community is a testament to the dedication to world-class performances from the musicians and Flint and Genesee County audiences alike.

More than 3,500 students from 21 counties across mid-Michigan discover an amazing world of music and dance in its state-of-the-art facility.
