Culture of Excellence
 

On September 20, 2021, Rear Adm. Bruce Gillingham, the Navy Surgeon General, signed the Navy Medicine Culture of Excellence Policy Statements Memorandum. The seven page document outlines how the command will “create and maintain a work environment in which all members are treated with dignity, decency, and respect,” wrote Gillingham. “We must create a culture that promotes respect, dignity, and trust for every single person by every single person.”
 
The document outlines how command members should act in five specific areas. They are Diversity and Inclusion; Equal Employment Opportunity; Fraternization and Consensual Romantic or Sexual Relationships Between Managers; Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault Prevention and Response; and Workplace Ant-Discrimination and Harassment.   
 
“These compiled policy statements provide deck plate types of behavior I expect every day from each member of Navy Medicine,” wrote Gillingham
