Visit Arches and discover a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. This red rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets.
A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.
DOINews: Interior's Diversity Change Agent Program Launches
Last edited 7/7/2015
Among the Department's many initiatives for building and sustaining an inclusive workplace is the institution of a Diversity Change Agent program. The Office of the Secretary has established a cadre of fully committed and well-trained diversity change agents to affect and mobilize a critical mass of stakeholders to lead efforts to educate our workforce about diversity: what it is, why it is important, and how to guide people towards achieving it.
The Diversity Change Agent program goal is to foster a diverse, inclusive and welcoming Department of the Interior. They will also promote diversity and inclusiveness in various programs, e.g., employee recruitment and retention, cultural competency initiatives, employee engagement, and training and development.
In August, the Diversity Change Agents successfully completed a 5- day course of instruction that included the FranklinCovey® workshops Championing Diversity, Working at the Speed of Trust, Leading Across Generations, and Rethinking Stress.
The Diversity Change Agent initiative is the first milestone in a journey of inclusion. Interior employees will hear more from their respective Agents and from the Office of the Secretary as we continue to make this great place to work.
