USCG AUX Diversity

     The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, Flotilla 5-1 for District 11 North’s “Diversity and Inclusion Calendar” was developed as an education and training tool to enhance mutual understanding and respect among the various religious, ethnic and cultural groups. This calendar is about honoring our differences and increasing awareness of the numerous important national and international observances and celebrations that may be commemorated in the United States. 

Acknowledging and respecting these events promotes greater knowledge of multiculturalism and diversity and is a foundation to inclusion.

Realizing diversity requires the creation of an inclusive work environment that respects and values the differences and similarities that each service member and employee brings to the Coast Guard Auxiliary.

The Coast Guard Auxiliary is defined by its history, culture, missions and traditions. This includes our people, who bring a wide range of diverse backgrounds and experiences that enrich our ability to perform our missions.

People are the strength of our service and diversity and inclusion is vital to our mission readiness and excellence.

Our mission is to build a positive environment for all personnel and nurture a climate of respect for people of all backgrounds and cultures. To this end, we will position the Coast Guard Auxiliary as a nationally recognized leader in diversity and inclusion management.
