Our way forward is very simple. We want to get dialogue about Diversity and Inclusion flowing. There will continue to be yearly data calls (after action reports on your installations' D&I events) from HAF. However, ACC will focus on establishing a forum that will facilitate broader, free-flowing communication to address barriers to diversity (which we define as including but not limited to: personal life experiences, geographic background, socioeconomic background, cultural knowledge, educational background, work background, language abilities, physical abilities, philosophical and spiritual perspectives, age, race, ethnicity, and gender). The forum chosen is LeanIn.org.
Our council will operate similar to familiar special interest groups on base such as CGOC, Top III, and so on. Our work load will be determined by us (and the Installation Commander/Vice Commander, who is the OPR for the installation D&I programs). We are allowed to meet monthly, for a reasonable duration before, after or during work hours, and make reasonable use of DoD spaces such as conference rooms, meeting areas, and break rooms. Our forum will facilitate communication from ACC to us, us to the community, and to other ACC installation D&I councils. Lean In has a library of useful documents (to include funding information and upcoming strategic plan). It has a forum where we can post insightful articles on D&I, for the community to read, etc. The site is also available to you on work computers, home devices, and mobile phones, making it accessible in most environments. This will enable us more efficient and fluid communication as we work across joint bases and even when connecting with non-military affiliated members in the community.
