Abstract:

The Department of Defense DoD recognizes that its most precious resource is its people. All of the war-fighting technology in the world is worthless without the dedication and commitment of the military and civilian women and men who put that technology to work. The Department makes gender diversity a high priority for decision makers at the highest levels. As a Department, and as a Nation, the DoD owes the military and civilian women a debt of gratitude. There are things we can do to ensure all of members receive equal support, opportunities, and fairness, with respect to a high quality of professional and personal life. The Secretary of Defense, through the Under Secretary of Defense, Personnel and Readiness, has numerous initiatives that support women specifically, as well as women and men collectively, and their families. Many of these policies can be found at the Departments collective MilitaryOneSource website 1-800-Military OneSource, as well as multiple Service and Directorate public domain sites. The Department is committed to transparently communicating these initiatives, polices and programs as widely as possible.
