WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio --

As leaders, do you have the tools and education needed to create an environment for your Airmen to thrive?

The National Air and Space Intelligence Center’s Library has made it easier for members to find these resources by creating a Diversity and Inclusion Corner.

Driven by NASIC’s Diversity and Inclusion Team and backed by Center leadership, this is part of an initiative to provide focused educational material to the NASIC workforce.

The D&I corner features a series of books that follows the Department of Air Force Diversity and Inclusion Resources list. The books are available to NASIC members to check out free of charge and can provide leaders with the tools to facilitate an inclusive environment that benefits the Air Force mission.

Col. Maurizio Calabrese, NASIC Commander, established a NASIC Diversity and Inclusion Team in July 2020. The team is charged with identifying, evaluating and changing procedures, barriers and practices that unfairly affect underrepresented NASIC members.

“I am honored to lead our NASIC Airmen,” said Calabrese. “And together we will continue to operate as a place that embodies excellence and innovation through global, organizational, behavioral, cognitive and demographic diversity to solve the nation’s toughest intelligence problems.”

In line with the DAF, NASIC’s goal is to ensure every Airman is valued and all Airmen have an equal opportunity to excel in a diverse and inclusive environment.

Chief Master Sgt. Kimberly Pollard, NASIC Command Chief, described one way in which NASIC members can help make this goal a reality – through conscientious, relationship-driven leadership.

“I urge [leaders] to face adversity by making opportunities for everyone they lead, said Pollard. “I also urge them to make diverse, inclusive networks. Mentorship is key and your mentor does not have to “look” like you.”

Some of the books available at the D&I corner are Blind Spot: Hidden Biases of Good People by Mahzarin Banaji and Anthony Greenwald, Radical Inclusion by Martin Dempsey and Ori Brafman, Teams of Teams by Stanly McChrystal and Outliners by Malcolm Gladwell.

You can find the approved DAF diversity and inclusion resource list here.
