DIA’s mission goes far beyond outpacing the strategic competition by providing intelligence to
its partners and allies. To achieve our mission, DIA depends on attracting and retaining the right
people in the
right places with the right talent. In order to create and sustain an ecosystem that embodies Inclusive
Diversity, Equity and Accessibility (IDEA) DIA designed a comprehensive IDEA Strategic Plan. The IDEA
Plan establishes the framework to address barriers, increase transparency, promote accountability,
culture of inclusive diversity, and provide accessibility and safety for all DIA Officers. Employing
strategies ensures that DIA will continue its tradition of excellence while modeling a diverse,
competent, and effective workforce.
The Equal Opportunity and Diversity Office (EO) reports directly to the Director of DIA offering

with disabilities, and women in the DIA.
EO leads DIA’s compliance activities and advises and coordinates on matters related to EEO laws,
regulations, and policies to ensure the DIA workplace is free of discrimination and retaliation. EO is
responsible for the overall strategic management of DIA's efforts to build and sustain an
diverse workforce and to ensure that equity is fully integrated into all aspects of the employee
