Diversity Topics in the Alaska Region

We want to build a workforce that is representative of the American people and work sites that are highly effective due to the contributions of the variety of American people that we employ. We want the National Park Service to continue to be a strong organization into the 21st century despite the changing demographics of this country.

We must continue to work toward creating an environment where workforce diversity is understood, valued and embraced, where there is an absence of bias, and where the mission is achieved through collaboration and teamwork. We must continue to move vigorously toward a workforce that reflects the diversity of American society at large and employs the best talents of all groups. This is good business for America and it is good business for the National Park Service.
