The Downtown Detroit Partnership (DDP) advances Detroit by driving engagement, development and programs that benefit businesses, residents and visitors throughout the Downtown’s urban core. We strengthen and support Downtown Detroit through strategic initiatives that evolve with the changing needs of the community.

Downtown Detroit Partnership does not discriminate in employment opportunities or practices based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, genetic information, national origin, age, disability, military status, veteran status or any other characteristic protected by law. All of our vendors and third-party contractors that list open positions on this site are also required to commit to the same practices.

We believe that inclusion, diversity and equity is about creating a culture that embraces the uniqueness of individuals and is representative of our Downtown Detroit stakeholders. We actively work to recognize, develop and promote initiatives towards inclusion, equity and diversity in our hiring, promotion policies and organized events.
