Diversity and inclusion

NATO highly values inclusion and perceives diversity as a strength. As such, NATO strives to ensure that its workforce reflects the distinctiveness and variation of its Allies. NATO's proactive strategies aim to attract, develop and retain a mix of people with different skills, backgrounds, experiences and cultures. This variety and access to a broader range of talent is essential to generate innovative ideas and insights, and greatly contributes to NATO's efficiency

Women Peace and Security initiative

NATO recognises the disproportionate impact that conflict has on women and girls, the vital roles women play in peace and security, and the importance of incorporating gender perspectives in all that the Alliance does. The Women, Peace and Security agenda was launched on 31 October 2000 with the adoption of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 and now includes nine additional Resolutions (1820, 1888, 1889, 1960, 2106, 2122, 2422, 2467 and 2493). NATO's approach to the Women, Peace and Security agenda is framed around the principles of integration, inclusiveness, and integrity.
