Special Emphasis Programs
The people of the National Security Agency are our greatest resource.
The social fabric of this agency is the key to our success, and the strength of any social network rests on understanding and valuing each member. We are committed to providing opportunities that expand our awareness of the people of NSA and that celebrate who we are. We achieve this in part through our Special Emphasis programs.
The term Special Emphasis comes via federal regulations that mandate programs to promote equal employment opportunity. In accordance with these regulations, the National Security Agency manages the following Employee Resource Grougs (ERGs):
Examples of recent presentations we have sponsored are:
These programs consist of training events, speakers, demonstrations, displays, panel discussions, and more.
Our population is much more diverse than these few programs might indicate, and so we have also honored great Americans, remembered significant events of the past, and explored different facets of what it means to be a member of the NSA family. New subjects arise every day, including differences in religion or spirituality, sexual orientation, and generation, giving us many different perspectives from which to understand ourselves. We use diversity to protect the safety of our nation.
