"CIA's success in achieving its national security mission depends on its ability to create a diverse and inclusive environment where all perspectives are heard, respected, and valued. By ensuring that every CIA officer is able to bring a full range of views and talents to our mission--through greater workforce mobility and flexibility, inclusive practices, and diversity--this Agency will be increasingly capable of closing persistent intelligence gaps and provide unique insight and support to its customers. To meet increasingly global and complex challenges, CIA must attract, develop, and retain a diverse workforce that we will leverage to enhance mission success. This three-year strategy defines a comprehensive approach to diversity and inclusion at a critical time for CIA, as we work to implement the Agency's modernization efforts and stand up the new Talent Center of Excellence. Advised by the Executive Diversity and Inclusion Council, CIA's Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer (CDIO) will serve as the executive agent for this strategy. The CDIO, working closely with Agency's senior leadership, will ensure that we hold ourselves accountable for making progress against these important initiatives. This strategy is aligned with CIA's Strategic Direction for Talent and builds upon several Agency initiatives, including the Diversity in Leadership Study (DLS), the Director's Advisory Group (DAG), Agency Modernization Task Force (AMTF) and the re-launching of Employee Resource Groups as Agency Resource Groups (ARGs). It focuses on three key goals, which are in alignment with federal government and Intelligence Community guidance: Weaving Diversity and Inclusion throughout the Talent Cycle, Becoming an Employer of Choice, and Increasing Diversity of Leadership."
