An "inclusive" National Guard (NG) promotes, fosters, and builds organizational strength through a positive work environment that promotes and respects the differences and similarities – both visible and invisible. This is manifested when a work environment is achieved where all individuals have equal access to opportunities, resources, and information to allow them to fully contribute individual strengths to the collective military might.
