|We want to develop a workforce that embodies our Guiding Principles, including one that states employees are our most valuable resource, are respected, and deserve an empowering, mentoring, and caring work environment. The specific vision for our workforce that embodies this principle is included in Conserving the Future: “Our workforce is diverse and inclusive, shares a passionate conservation ethic, and works together as a cohesive whole.”|
|We must equip our workforce at every level with the tools necessary to be effective leaders. To do so, we must provide them with the mindset, skills, experiences, abilities, and confidence to know that everyone can make a difference in our organization and in the greater conservation cause.|

|Too often, we have associated the term “inclusive” with demographics, assuming that inclusion means just supporting women and minorities. But it is more than promoting gender or racial diversity. Inclusion is about recognizing, respecting, and valuing any difference that influences personal perspectives. These unique perspectives help us react differently to solve problems and create different opportunities. The best organizational practices for superior performance are directly linked to employing and retaining people with a diversity of thought. An inclusive workplace is one which fosters a diversity of thought and ideas. We recommend that the Service conduct programs specifically to promote inclusion, revamp diversity training, and emphasize the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.|
