In the community
The DNR values diversity and actively seeks to attract individuals from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
We recognize that a diverse workforce is essential for innovation and growth. DNR has more than 4,000 employees who bring with them a rich mix of cultural backgrounds and points of view. These employees work collectively to meet the needs of the department and it's increasingly diverse customer base.
Moreover, we are committed to recruiting and maintaining a diverse workforce because we believe it's the right thing to do. DNR has implemented a variety of diversity initiatives with the goal of creating an inclusive workplace environment and organizational culture.
We are devoted to developing and advancing diversity initiatives related to the recruitment, retention and promotion of our diverse workforce regardless of ethnicity, gender, disability, or veteran status. We believe that diversity can help build a stronger, more competitive organization.
DNR believes that by valuing a range of perspectives, by learning about cultures different from our own, by encouraging fresh diverse ideas to address business needs, we make the DNR a great place to work!
