Coast Guard Civilian Careers

Coast Guard Civilian Careers : Diversity

The U.S. Coast Guard fosters an inclusive environment that emphasizes support, achievement, sharing, challenge, and a spirit of camaraderie. We are an organization whose members are brought closer together because of our unique and important mission.

At the U.S. Coast Guard, we are proud to serve all Americans: all backgrounds, cultures, and ethnic origins. This same philosophy extends to the individuals we hire and develop. Diversity is at the heart of our core values and it is vital to our success as shown in our Diversity Policy Statement.

How does it impact our workforce? We firmly believe that the more perspectives, distinct personalities, divergent points-of-view, and different ideas we can include in our team, the stronger our ability to grow and achieve.

The U.S. Coast Guard is an Equal Opportunity Employer. All qualified applicants will be considered regardless of political affiliation, race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, age or disability. In the civilian employment context, non-merit factors may not be a basis for any personnel action.

Below is a list of some organizations the Coast Guard has worked with:


The U.S. Coast Guard welcomes and encourages applications from people with disabilities, and will work with the needs of those persons so they can enjoy a challenging and rewarding civilian career as a member of our team. Job applicants who are qualified individuals with a disability need not be current or former federal employee to be eligible for appointment under Schedule A of the excepted service. We are committed to meeting our affirmative employment goals to ensure that people with disabilities have equal opportunity for employment and career advancement on the basis of merit within the U.S. Coast Guard. The Coast Guard strives to be the model employer of persons with disabilities. We will work to ensure that opportunities are not closed to qualified individuals, and that reasonable accommodations, necessary for successful performance, are provided under the law.
