Watch Diversify Wildlife
The Western Section of the Wildlife Society recognizes that human diversity is an asset, both to the organization and to the field. The diversity committee recognizes that diversity stems from not only ethnic and gender composition, but also cultural heritage, life and career experiences, economic backgrounds and abilities. Developing and encouraging a strong, diverse Society is essential to achieving the Society's purpose and goals. The Section is committed to continuing efforts to attract, encourage, and fully develop talent from the full range of our members diverse backgrounds and potentials. The Section recognizes that it is from this increasingly diverse group that the Society's future leaders will come, and we want to support the future of our organization and our field.
The goals of the Western Section Diversity Committee are to: Engage youth to encourage interest in wildlife, conservation, and the field of wildlife biology; foster a welcoming, inclusive and supportive environment for members of the society from underrepresented groups to achieve professional development; and increase awareness of the value of human diversity to the society and field at large.
