The SEAFWA Minorities in Natural Resources Conservation Committee (MINRC) has established the Diversity and Inclusion Award program to recognize the achievements of outstanding diversity and inclusion employment and outreach practices among SEAFWA member agencies. The SEAFWA annual Diversity and Inclusion Award is also a tool that will allow member agencies to glean from best practices implemented by other member agencies and creates a benchmark of progress toward developing more inclusion among Wildlife Agencies.
Winners are recognized by two categories:
1) Workforce Diversity and Inclusion - the creation and successful efforts to implement programs, initiatives and practices.
2) Diversity Outreach and Education - outreach and active, consistent engagement of minorities, women and persons with disabilities in the areas of wildlife and environmental conservation.
