The Army defines diversity as the different attributes, experiences, and backgrounds of our Soldiers, Civilians and Family Members that further enhance our global capabilities and contribute to an adaptive, culturally astute Army.
The Army’s diversity mission is to develop and implement a strategy that contributes to mission readiness while transforming and sustaining the Army as a national leader in diversity.
The Army’s diversity vision is to be the national leader in embracing the strengths of diverse people in an inclusive environment. This includes investing in and managing talent, valuing individuals and developing culturally astute Soldiers and Civilians who enhance our communities and are prepared for the human dimension of leadership and global engagements.
There are many benefits of the Army’s diversity efforts, including:
A diverse Army does not determine success by a Soldier’s or Civilian’s appearance, preferences, ideas or beliefs, but rather by what’s inside… the abilities, the determination, the courage. Bringing everyone’s different attributes and experiences together will enhance our ability to operate globally with a culturally astute Force.
The Army’s future plans are reflected in a vision to become the national leader in embracing the strengths of diverse people in an inclusive environment by investing and managing talent, valuing individuals, and developing culturally astute Soldiers and Civilians who enhance our communities. The Army will pursue an aggressive, but comprehensive strategy that assures:
These combined efforts will keep us Army Strong® well into the future.
