Wing HRAs empower, educate and equip Airmen at all levels to successfully leverage diversity’s strengths through training and initiatives that enhances individuals’ cultural competencies and through this, create an inclusive culture within the organization.

Cultural competence is the ability to understand, communicate and effectively interact with people across the full spectrum of diversity. Being self-aware, appreciating and leveraging the varied differences and capabilities that each member provides, engaging in candid communication and feedback, and working effectively across these differences are examples of cultural competencies necessary in order to mature as an inclusive Airman and leader of Airmen.

These efforts will shape a culture that values and promotes agility, innovation and resiliency (AIR) for all Airmen.
