Office Staff & Program Responsibility
Both the Pacific and Pacific Southwest Regions of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service collectively have the largest number of field installations in the Service, working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.
The staff of the Division of Diversity and Civil Rights serves both the Pacific and Pacific Southwest Regions, two separate field organizations that comprise over 2,500 permanent and temporary employees in over 120 scientific, professional, administrative, technical, and wage-grade occupations. These two Regions are two of the most complex field organizations in the Service, requiring the largest DCR staff outside of the Headquarters Office in Washington, D.C. The Pacific and Pacific Southwest DCR Diversity/Inclusion/Civil Rights Program reports to both a Regional and Deputy Regional Director in the Pacific Region, as well as the Regional Director and Deputy Regional Director of the Pacific Southwest Region.
Further, the DCR staff is comprised of a unique blend of highly diverse as well as atypical occupational fields as compared to other EEO offices throughout the Service or within the Headquarters office. Those positions include the Regional Accessibility Coordinator, an EEO Counselor, two Regional Workforce Recuiters, and an Equal Employment Specialist (general practitioner). All report to the Zone Equal Employment Manager who serves as the Chief, Division of Diversity and Civil Rights. The DCR Program is fully funded and vested within both the Pacific and Pacific Southwest Regions.
