The Department of the Air Force is extending the participation deadline for the Inspector General Disparity Review until May 9. Due to a significant response rate, the survey, which began April 9, will remain open to facilitate maximum feedback from airmen and guardians.
The survey is part of the second ongoing Inspector General Disparity Review which expands its focus to gender and ethnicity, including Hispanics, Latinos, Asians, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders.
“To fully capture the voice of airmen and guardians, the Department of the Air Force Inspector General will keep the ongoing gender, racial and ethnic disparity review survey open for an extra week,” said Lt. Gen. Sami Said, Air Force Inspector General. “Feedback so far has been very high, so we’re keeping the survey open for an extra week to give everyone a chance to contribute to this very important effort. We highly encourage all our airmen and guardians to share their stories, views and concerns. To the tens of thousands that already have, thank you!”
Survey results are anonymous and will be analyzed alongside targeted interviews, more than 100 small-group discussions with airmen and guardians across the DAF, targeted small-group surveys and a comprehensive review of available data.
The Air Force Inspector General will publicly release results of the second disparity review this summer along with an update on progress based on the first racial disparity review.
