Diversity and Inclusion
Civil Air Patrol Definition of Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity is a composite of individual characteristics, experiences, and abilities that are consistent with the CAP Mission and Core Values and reflective of the communities in which we serve.
Civil Air Patrol diversity includes but is not limited to: personal life experiences, geographic background, socioeconomic background, cultural knowledge, educational background, work background, language abilities, physical abilities, philosophical and spiritual perspectives, race, color, sex, age, religion (creed), national origin (ancestry), sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, marital status, and military or veteran status. Inclusion is the process of creating a culture where all members of the organization are free to make their fullest contributions to the success of the group, and where there are no unnecessary barriers to success. Civil Air Patrol diversity and inclusion efforts complement, but remain separate and distinct from, CAP’s Equal Opportunity compliance programs and activities.
