Diversity & Inclusion

Air Force D & I logo

The challenges we face today are far too serious, and the implications of failure far too great, for our Air Force to do less than fully and inclusively leverage our nation’s greatest strength—our remarkably diverse people. 

Across the force, and most especially, across the Air Force Materiel Command, diversity of background, experience, demographics, perspectives, thought and organization are critical to our ability to execute the requirements of the National Defense Strategy. We must continue to strive towards greater diversity and inclusion across all aspects of our mission set to continue to be successful. This is an imperative for the success of our command and the Air Force to continue to fly, fight and win into the future.
