This presentation is designed to provide a real life and alternative perspective on the topic of diversity. We often times stress the value of a diverse workforce in terms of compliance, best practice and retention focused initiatives. By partnering with the Cincinnati Zoological Gardens, we will be focusing on diversity in the natural environment as a parallel to the human environment. We'll discuss what diversity is and why it's important using the natural environment as the departure point. Our discussion will continue with how biodiversity benefits the natural environment while focusing on the African Lion as an example of the role diversity plays. Finally we'll focus on links between what works in nature and how it relates to creating a thriving and healthy environment that leverages a broad spectrum of gender, age, race and cultures.
• What is Biodiversity?
• Why is Biodiversity Important?
• The 5 Benefits of Biodiversity
• Coexistence: Lions, Livelihood and Resilience in Africa
• Workplace Implications of Diversity
About the Speaker
David Jenike, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. Dave Jenike became CZBG’s VP and COO in July 2007 after working in the Zoo’s Education Department in various capacities—including as Director of Education and finally as VP of Education and Facilities—since 1990. He is responsible for all aspects of the day-to-day business of the Zoo, including Animal Operations, Animal Health, Park Operations, Facilities and Planning, Marketing and Public Relations, Education, Membership, and Horticulture.
Dave earned both his bachelor’s degree (in Zoology) and his Masters (Environmental Science) from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and completed an Environmental Institutional Management Course at Delaware University in Ashland, Delaware. His enduring passion for environmental education is reflected in his development of and instructing in Earth Expeditions, the university courses for educators offered by the Zoo in collaboration with Miami University’s Project Dragonfly and his co-creation of Wild Research, a project supported by the National Science Foundation with the simple mission to “deepen public engagement in science and conservation.”
He serves on the Management Operations Committee of Uptown Consortium, a community resource and sustainable development organization of communities and businesses surrounding the Zoo.
