Diversity Policy Statement
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is committed to creating
an equitable, hospitable, appreciative, safe, and inclusive park environment - one that
embraces the full spectrum of all community members' contributions. The Commission makes
this commitment because:
- Diversity strengthens the workforce in competence and ability;
- Celebrating diversity appreciates and values individual differences;
- Diversity serves an increasingly heterogeneous society;
- Diversity helps ensure the relevance of a state park system, its mission,
properties, and programs to the people of this state today and in the future; and
- Diversity is crucial to our ability to serve all citizens.
The Commission encourages and supports staff efforts to reach out to people
of all races, national origins, abilities, religions, sexual orientations,
veteran status, ages, and genders who use the parks and who live in communities
nearby parks. This outreach is to focus on engaging in partnerships that expand
programs and services in a way that is meaningful and of value to all people. The
Commission is dedicated to offering quality experiences to all visitors through a
workforce and volunteer corps that reflects the diversity of Washington State.
