Diversity at CZS
The Chicago Zoological Society is committed to diversity and values the benefits and advantages of a diverse workforce. One of our organization’s core values is Diversity, valuing differences and the respectful involvement of all people, employing and leveraging the gifts, talents, and experience from each person's culture, perspective, and background to create value for the organization and help make it even more successful. The Society understands the importance of attracting and retaining talented individuals of many different backgrounds from all over the world. A more diverse workforce provides many benefits to the organization by enabling us to draw upon a greater richness and wealth of knowledge, experiences, perspectives, ideas, talents, and human resources. Diversity makes our organization stronger, more relevant, and more successful, and better able to achieve our important conservation mission of inspiring conservation leadership. By tapping into a diversity of knowledge, backgrounds, perspectives, and experience, the Society is able to more effectively serve, develop, and deliver programs and provide extraordinary experiences for our increasingly diverse audience of over two million guests each year.
