3 DOD Building Blocks of Diversity (Guiding Policy)
DON Diversity and Inclusion aligns to DOD Building Blocks of Diversity - Compliance is the foundation for a strong diversity program Ensures fairness Leads to inclusion Focuses on demographics

4 Progress to Date Drafted DON Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Plan
DON Executive Diversity Advisory Council Relatively Mature Diversity Programs at majority of Commands Diversity Specific Training Provided by 19 DON Commands MD-715 Report Linked to D&I Developed Strong Foundation through Command Barrier Analysis Training for EEO and Diversity Teams Results in accountability systems for measurable, sustainable change Many DON Commands have a history of Diversity Programs and training stretching back 10 years; The DON D&I Plan will formalize and align all DON programs EDAC was formed for the specific task of developing a diverse pipeline for Senior Leadership positions; Role of EDAC is being examined in consideration of requirement of a DON overarching D&I Council As I mentioned, many of DON’s Commands recognized the need for a formal Diversity program, usually in the beginning linked to recruitment. Those programs have grown and matured and are not engaged in very substantive barrier analysis related to issues of inclusion. I’ll speak to that again in a few moments….. For DON, the key has been the ability to link the MD-715 report to efforts underway to establish Diversity and Inclusion programs. Through the MD-715 we have provided Barrier Analysis Training across all Commands – training which targeted not only EEO practitioners but Diversity, Senior Leaders, Affinity Group members, anyone engaged in analyzing data or examining policies practices and procedures affecting EEO, Diversity or Inclusion

5 Demographics Continued Low Participation of Hispanic Males and Females and White Females Low Participation of People with Targeted Disabilities (PWTD) 2% goal Shortfall Multiple commands identify attitudinal barriers as causal factor
