The Defense Intelligence Agency’s success depends on the skills of its diverse workforce and a shared commitment to executing the defense intelligence mission.
DIA believes that every member of its workforce must have an equal opportunity to excel in their careers through improved training, mentoring, and access to challenging work opportunities. DIA also recognizes that a richly diverse workforce, with a broad range of skills, capabilities and perspectives is only achieved through thoughtful recruitment, development, and retention activities. Discrimination, of any kind, based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability (physical/mental), and/or sexual orientation, is prohibited.
The Defense Intelligence Agency’s leadership is expected to take an active role in creating a sustaining a non-hostile/non-discriminatory environment. Each person is important to our mission, and we stand in unity as we face the challenges of protecting our freedoms.
The Defense Intelligence Agency is committed to establishing and maintaining a productive work environment based on inclusion, equality, team building, and the efficient use of employees’ experiences, perspectives, and talents.
Special Emphasis Programs (SEPs) are an integral part of the Defense Intelligence Agency’s (DIA) Equal Opportunity Program. The Programs ensure that Federal agencies take affirmative steps to provide equal opportunity to women, minorities, and people with disabilities in all areas of employment.
DIA offers its employees, both civilian and military, a variety of Career Benefits that include the ability to participate in an alternate work schedule program. DIA also offers its employees the Federal Employees Group Life Insurance Program (FEGLI), the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program and the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS), all of which are part of employee choices to be made within an extensive Federal employees benefits package.
