AUTHORS:  Mr. David Buggs, Chief Diversity and Inclusion Director for the State of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department

ABSTRACT:  This workshop will address the growing concern in the lack of diversity, inclusion and cultural awareness in the fields of conservation throughout the country. We will engage in the benefits when these elements are present and the consequences when these elements are lacking and not considered. We will engage in the benefits of the human element benefits being as diverse as the animals we research and protect; the negative impact and perceived barriers to why it does not exist; strategies that can bring changes and eliminate this field of isolation and strategies to embrace, change, encourage and growth more reflective of the community we serve.
