Females add diversity to our military. This diversity maximizes the value of building a team comprised of multiple backgrounds and talent sets. It allows the services to take advantage of unique life experiences which develop different problem solving approaches. This adds to our corporate strength, which ultimately improves our military readiness. DACOWITS provides support to P&R’s mission by identifying, studying and providing recommendations on issues such as assignments, advancement, health care, equipment and training, to name a few, which may impact a woman’s decision to either initially join or remain on active duty. ea9d01e6-77c4-43b6-9229-6fd4a1a98075 Recommandations Not Available 81c4b7af-b7b9-463d-8b42-9189430b142b Make, Accept, Implement a82b4852-0bf9-4f28-b40c-c8e92d1665a8 bb292153-9b17-4232-a7f7-0fcb75bb6612 Recommendations Made Number Defense Department Advisory Committee on Women in the Services Department of Defense Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 It should be noted here that the DACOWITS was originally chartered in 1951 to address the issues of women in the military.
