From the U.S. Navy’s recent Task Force One Navy final report on diversity:

TF1N Pledge

As a key member of Task Force One Navy I will invest the time, attention and empathy required to analyze and evaluate Navywide issues related to racism, sexism, ableism and other structural and interpersonal biases.

I pledge to be actively inclusive in the public and private spheres where I live and work, and proactively encourage others to do the same.

I pledge to advocate for and acknowledge all lived experiences and intersectional identities of every Sailor in the Navy. I pledge to engage in ongoing self-reflection, education and knowledge sharing to better myself and my communities.

I pledge to be an example in establishing healthy, inclusive and team-oriented environments.

I pledge to constructively share all experiences and information gained from activities above to inform the development of Navywide reforms.

Honest to God, that’s what the Navy wrote on p. 10 of their big report:

Chairman Xi is likely thinking about now, “You know, fighting our way through the US Navy to conquer Taiwan might not be so hard after all…”
