NOAA Diversity and Inclusion Management Advisory Council (DIMAC)

 

The DIMAC was established with the primary objective to improve Agency diversity and inclusion actions and policies, to include effective integration and alignment with the Agency’s mission.  NOAA is committed to principles of excellence and core values of science, stewardship, and service.  This commitment includes actively pursuing an inclusive environment in which the Agency leverages diversity to achieve mission goals and business objectives and maximizes the potential of individuals and the organization. In order to realize those core values the Agency must interweave diversity and inclusion activities in day-to-day operations to ensure a skilled, diverse workforce capable of providing the foundation and future promise of the these elements of NOAA’s mission to the Nation.

The DIMAC serves as the principal advisory body to the NOAA Executive Panel on diversity, inclusion and employee engagement issues with the goal of ensuring that NOAA achieves workforce diversity, workplace inclusion, and sustainability of these important initiatives.

The Diversity and Inclusion Management Advisory Council:

The DIMAC fosters collaboration across organizational boundaries in regards to diversity and inclusion.  The DIMAC ensures a coordinated, agency-wide approach to diversity, inclusion, sustainment and equal employment opportunity plans, policies, and practices.  Council members will represent their organizational components as well as NOAA-wide interests.  The DIMAC may establish and charge ongoing or special purpose teams and ad hoc workgroups to address specific issues and develop recommendations and courses of action.
