Diversity and Inclusion Working Group
The 436th Airlift Wing Diversity & Inclusion Working Group (DIWG) goal is to identify the diversity and inclusion strengths, issues and opportunities within all aspects of the total workforce at Dover Air Force Base. This charter establishes a systematic, base-wide approach to managing diversity initiatives and addressing barriers to inclusion. The DIWG embodies the pulse of diversity and inclusion throughout the wing, utilizing different approaches to identify barriers and present those challenges to leadership for awareness and possible solutions.
Diversity and inclusion are critical elements to helping the wing achieve strategic goals. Leaders who understand and value diversity help create a culture of inclusion and respect, giving Airmen and their families a sense of belonging to the Air Force community. They live, work, and play.
