Diversity is understanding and appreciating the interdependence of humanity; it refers to the characteristics that make people unique. Inclusion refers to the mannerisms and social norms that make people feel welcome. Inclusivity is important for diversity efforts to succeed, and working on creating a more inclusive culture is proving beneficial to the United States of America and its military. The U.S. Air Force’s Diversity and Inclusion program continues to help the Air Force evolve. Every team is stronger and more effective when made up of Airmen with different perspectives and backgrounds, who are bound together by core values.
