Diversity & Inclusion

The USFK community is a safe, inclusive, and vigilant environment free of racial discrimination and bigotry.

Commanders and leaders at all levels must create environments which allow individuals to speak openly and candidly about these issues without fear of reprisal. Now is the time to have tough conversations.

We remain committed to creating an environment free of discrimination, where everyone is treated with dignity and respect regardless of race, religion, color, sexual orientation, gender or national origin.

We must all work together to create a safe and inclusive environment that is free of racism, bigotry and hate, and everyone knows they matter and are valued members of our community.

The commitment we have made to diversity and inclusion promotes respect, acceptance, teamwork, and innovation despite differences across race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and age. When different minds (i.e., cognitive styles or worldviews) collaborate to achieve a common goal, everyone wins. The Strength in Diversity initiative is based on this idea.

The DoD Instruction defines diversity as "All the different characteristics and attributes of individuals from varying demographics that are consistent with the DoD’s core values, integral to overall readiness and mission accomplishment, and reflective of the nation we serve."
