Charles Barber, Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Programs for the Navy, and Anselm Beach, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Diversity and Inclusion in the Army, discuss new DEI initiatives for military services.
- Diversity, equity, and inclusion are priorities across the entire government, and that includes the Army and Navy. Both services have offices devoted to the promotion and implementation of those goals.
- Meritocracy is an essential piece to be included in diversity, equity and inclusion priorities, to continuously assess barriers to equity in the military.
- The services are working to build cohesive, diverse teams, to better address the complex nature of modern military structures.
