Diversity Thursday

I can't understand why they didn't have people clawing over each other to join.

Now, get your Venn diagrams ready so you know who they don't care about.

EEO? Sure.

This is the last week to apply.....

This is a great opportunity to get involved and make a difference. We're looking for individuals interested in learning about each other and discussing and developing new and better ways to address work topics such as recruitment, retention and development and to eliminate barriers that impact all of us at WD and NAVAIR.

OK STEM folks, here is your chance for a little math. Take all the salaries and overhead costs for the resident grievance-pimps in the EEO shop. Now, take all their self-licking ice cream cones identified about and multiply by the "3-5 hours per month."

Now stretch that out DOD wide.
