Through education and awareness activities, the Diversity and Inclusion Education and Awareness Program (DIEAP) increases the D&I acumen of personnel across the Coast Guard and helps to ensure they are equipped with the knowledge and skills useful in fostering an inclusive workplace.
The term diversity means the practice of including the many communities, identities, races, ethnicities, backgrounds, abilities, cultures, and beliefs of the American people, including underserved communities. The term inclusion means the recognition, appreciation, and use of the talents and skills of employees of all backgrounds.
Diversity and Inclusion Change Agents:
Change agents are a cornerstone of the Diversity and Inclusion Education and Awareness Program (DIEAP). After completing an education and training program, these agents provide diversity and inclusion (D&I) training sessions to members at the unit level as well as one-on-one coaching services to commanding officers, officers-in-charge, and program managers. Serving as a change agent is a collateral duty.
