John Jones completed a thirty-year career in Federal service on March 31, 1997. From an initial appointment as a Summer Aide at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, John served as a Regional Personnel Officer with General Services Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency and as a Regional Equal Opportunity Officer with the Department of Housing and Urban Development. In January, 1989, John was appointed the Director of Equal Opportunity for the Bureau of Reclamation, Department of the Interior and served in that capacity until his retirement.
John was a recipient of Interior's Meritorious Service Award for his leadership and contributions to Reclamation's achievements in equal employment opportunity and affirmative employment. John's experience as a senior manager in both equal opportunity and human resources provides him with a unique perspective on how these disciplines interface.
Since his retirement, John has continued his interest in equal opportunity by serving on the Lakewood Commission on Cultural Diversity and Human Relations and by providing consultative services to the Bureau of Reclamation in the development of its Workforce Diversity Plan. John has taught courses in workforce diversity, conflict management and the prevention of sexual harassment.
