Coast Guard Diversity Champion
AUXILIARIST JAMES DELEON
Congratulations to Auxiliarist James Deleon, our
Diversity Champion! The Diversity Champion
distinction is bestowed upon individuals or units who have made
significant contributions in support of the Commandant's
Diversity Strategic Plan
Auxiliarist James M. Deleon has been the driving force behind a
successful Diversity program at Flotilla 2-76, District 5
Northern Region. Mr. Deleon's guidance and dedication has been
paramount in training a diverse membership to adapt the
important principals of inclusion of all members and for
developing an outreach initiative which has fostered measurable
growth in several demographics. He led his team to a standard
of excellence which resulted in earning the prestigious NACO
Three Star Award for Excellence in Diversity Management.
Auxiliarist Deleon says, "I'm very proud to be a member of the
Coast Guard Auxiliary and I believe that Diversity is one of the
cornerstones of our country in particular, and the Military in general. We, in the Coast Guard Auxiliary of Flotilla 2-76, 5NR, strive to
represent, through the makeup of our membership, our community at
large". He deserves recognition for his noble endeavors to build a
team where the best people of all backgrounds are doing their best
work, supported by a culture of inclusion and fairness to drive
innovation, quality and mission focused results.
Auxiliarist Deleon's leadership, mentorship, and devotion to
duty are exemplary and serve as a great example of the positive
impact a unit can have on their unit and the community. As a direct result of
your efforts and outreach, the Coast Guard is making strides
toward achieving the vision set out in the Diversity Strategic
Plan. Thank you for your work in championing diversity!
