USOC Diversity And Inclusion Vision

D&I Vision:
Consistent with the USOC’s mission, the USOC’s Diversity and Inclusion division aspires to achieve the following vision as the foundation for setting priorities:
“The U.S. Olympic and Paralympic family embraces differences for better athletic performance and business results.”


D&I Is In Our DNA:
The USOC was reorganized by the Ted Stevens Olympic and Amateur Sports Act, originally enacted in 1978. Pursuant to Section 220511 of the act, the USOC is required to submit a report to Congress every quadrennium detailing its operations for the preceding four years. This report must include information regarding the participation of women, people with disabilities and racial/ethnic minorities in NGB athletic, governance and management activities. The report must also include descriptions of programs and initiatives that encourage the participation of women, people with disabilities and racial/ethnic minorities within each NGB and HPMO.

Additionally, by signing the Performance Partnership Agreement, each NGB and HPMO is required to submit its diversity data annually.
