Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion are dynamic ideas that require long-term strategic thinking at all levels of the organization. The Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs (DMA) is proud of its commitment to promote diversity and provide an environment where each individual is respected, honored, supported, and rewarded based on personal achievement and contribution. We strive to ensure our Soldiers and Airmen work in an atmosphere that is open, creative, and inspires the best in terms of effort and results. Within DMA, each individual has equal opportunity and is encouraged to achieve his or her full potential. Human and cultural differences do not interfere, but enhance our ability and willingness to recognize, support and reward. As leaders, we understand that people are different and we make it a point to appreciate the uniqueness of our team members. The establishment of our Joint Diversity Council demonstrates our commitment to diversity and confirms our allegiance to continuous improvement.

Diversity is a force multiplier and is an integral part of our mission. Achieving a truly inclusive environment requires the personal commitment and support of each employee of DMA. While the Joint Diversity Strategic Plan provides the roadmap to ensure success, we need YOUR support in this effort to help make certain DMA is the organization we envision it to be.

Information Quality

According to the Office of Management and Budget guidelines, a basic standard of quality (objectivity, utility, and integrity) must be maintained and appropriate steps taken to incorporate information quality criteria into agency public information dissemination practices. After reviewing initial draft agency guidelines, OMB also issued supplementary guidance that considered important issues and approaches and provided guidance on those provisions that applied uniformly to all agencies.

Open Government

On December 8, 2009, The Office of Management and Budget issued the Open Government Directive (M-10-06) which described the principles of transparency, participation, and collaboration as “the cornerstone of an open government.”

Open Records/FOIA

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a law that gives you the right to access information from the federal government. It is often described as the law that keeps citizens in the know about their government. Since 1967, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) has provided the public the right to request access to records from any federal agency. It is often described as the law that keeps citizens in the know about their government. Federal agencies are required to disclose any information requested under the FOIA unless it falls under one of nine exemptions which protect interests such as personal privacy, national security, and law enforcement.

Plain Language

The Plain Writing Act of 2010 requires federal agencies to write “clear Government communication that the public can understand and use.” President Obama also emphasized the importance of establishing “a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration” in his January 21, 2009, Memorandum on Transparency and Open Government.
