Diversity Management Program Information


Diversity is the uniqueness of all individuals which encompasses different personal attributes, values, and organizational roles.


Diversity Management is the process of creating and maintaining a positive environment where the differences of all personnel are recognized, understood, and valued, so that all can reach their full potential and maximize their contributions to the Coast Guard. - From U.S. Coast Guard Managing Diversity as a Process Study, October 1994.

District 7 Diversity Advisor (DSO-DV) -  James Andrew Poole


Auxiliarists serve in communities throughout the country, come from different social, religious, ethnic, and economic backgrounds, and join together to contribute their time and talents toward the common cause of supporting Coast Guard missions.  They recognize diversity and strive to remove all barriers, real or perceived, so that current and potential Auxiliarists feel an increased pride and honor in their membership. The Coast Guard Auxiliary will:  

a. HONOR Auxiliarists’ desire for training and meaningful involvement, so that it can enhance the Coast Guard’s capability and promote safety in the boating community.

b. RESPECT the volunteer nature of its organization and its unique attributes, which enable it to fulfill its role as an integral part of Coast Guard Forces.

c. Recognize and encourage DEVOTION TO DUTY, while understanding the diversity of Auxiliarists and their varying abilities to give of their time.

d. PROVIDE current and potential Auxiliarists with a positive environment that will promote membership across the Nation, enhance opportunities to serve, and increase desire to remain as long-term contributing Auxiliarists.

e. FULFILL its missions, provide adequate resources to its membership, and inspire pride in the Auxiliary.  This will enable it to expand its membership diversity and strengthen its ability to be “Semper Paratus”.Extracted from the AUXILIARY MANUAL, Chapter 7 A-3
