A Sailor's Story: U.S. Navy's Diversity Directorate

Posted:

In this time of Post-DADT policy change, it's worth nothing that our U.S. Navy has always aimed to create an environment that encourages and enables all Sailors and civilians to reach their personal and professional potential.

And that's something to be proud about.

The Navy's Diversity Directorate under the Chief of Naval Personnel is charged with creating a Strategy for Our People in the 21st century that will continually invest in the strength of America's diversity so that every Sailor and civilian can prosper and contribute to mission readiness.

DEFINING NAVY DIVERSITY

According to the Navy, diversity is defined as welcoming all the different characteristics and attributes of individual Sailors and civilians that enhance the mission readiness of the Navy.

NAVY DIVERSITY GOALS

  • The Navy desires to harvest and represent the strength of the Nation's diversity.
  • The Navy strives to be a team whose people are treated with dignity and respect, and are encouraged to lead and feel empowered to reach their full potential.
THE MISSION OF THE NAVY DIVERSITY DIRECTORATE

The Navy's stated mission of Diversity - to provide Navy leadership with the tools and resources to help create and sustain a cultural awareness that values diversity and an environment where every individual prospers and contributes to the mission - is in keeping with their action.

In fact, the U.S. Navy was the first of the military services to release a concrete training schedule to move forward on sexual nondiscrimination policies. The Navy plans to finish training sailors on the new law allowing gays to serve openly by the end of June 2011.
