NASA’s role has long been to set the vision for space exploration.
To successfully accomplish our missions and build on the agency’s incredible legacy, we must be fully committed to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) for our entire workforce. We must remain united to empower these values, enable the best teamwork, and accomplish our common purpose and vision – to discover and expand knowledge for the benefit of all humanity.
As President Biden stated in Executive Order 13985, “[e]qual opportunity is the bedrock of American democracy, and our diversity is one of our country’s greatest strengths.” It is our duty at NASA to remain steadfast in “advancing equity, civil rights, racial justice, and equal opportunity.”
Linked here is NASA’s new Policy Statement on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility for NASA’s Workforce and Workplaces to make clear NASA’s full commitment to DEIA. It is with this framework we can reinforce our agency’s commitment to inclusion and equity to accomplish our missions together and set the standard across the world.
We are stronger together, and our diversity is our strength.
