MDA Supports an Environment of Diversity
MDA values every bright mind that helps us meet our goal. For that reason, we've cultivated an environment where each applicant and employee are offered an opportunity for equal advancement and recognition, regardless of gender, cultural background, or disability.

If you have any questions about diversity at the Missile Defense Agency, please e-mail: email@example.com
We recognize that diversity includes, but is not limited to, personal life experiences, geographic background, socioeconomic background, cultural knowledge, educational background, work background, language abilities, physical abilities, philosophical and spiritual perspectives, age, race, ethnicity, and gender. As an agency, we will approach diversity as a composite of these individual characteristics, experiences, and abilities consistent with the MDA's core values. Our recruitment, retention, and development programs must maximize individual strengths and combine individual abilities and perspectives for the good of our mission.
