The Committee Charge
The ANR Equal Opportunity Advisory Committee is charged with helping the Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources reach its objective of developing a culture of diversity throughout every aspect of ANR.
The advisory committee will attempt to do this by bringing ANR leadership's attention to issues that they feel weigh significantly upon such topics as equitable representation within ANR's workforce and in program delivery. Closely related topics such as gender and disability awareness, veteran outreach and minority retention also will be examined.
