The Secretary of the Air Force Diversity and Inclusion office leadership recently participated in the Gartner ReimagineHR Conference Oct. 23 to 25 in Orlando.
The Department of the Air Force led its inaugural DAF Strategic Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Certification training event Sept. 21–22 at the University of Virginia Darden Center in Arlington.
This year’s theme, “Amplifying the Voices and Journeys of Hispanic and Latino Leaders across our Armed Forces,” aimed to empower Airmen and Guardians and showcased the spectrum of talent, experience and dedication within the DAF's ranks.
Chaplain Capt. Donsha Watkins, 9th Reconnaissance Wing, has brought her values of diversity and representation to her duties as an Individual Mobilization Augmentee at Beale AFB.
The event aimed to enlighten students on employment, internships, scholarships and the vast opportunities within the DoD, spanning various fields including STEM, business and arts.
