As leaders we believe diversity and inclusion makes our organization better. The New York National Guard is one of the most diverse forces in the nation. Leaders who are aware of cultural differences are able to create effective teams that respect differences while working towards mission accomplishment. To recruit, retain, and motivate high-performing Soldiers, it is essential for our organization to recognize these members.
Congratulations to this year’s Diversity Affinity Award recipients!
These members strongly promote equal opportunity and diversity within our organization. They are outstanding role models, not only for ethnic minorities, but for all members within the NYNG. Their superior performance to the organization and communities make them excellent advocates for equal opportunity and diversity.
