Diversity & Equity
We believe that the goal is to create workplaces that leverage diversity of thought. Why? Research shows that diversity of thought is a wellspring of creativity, enhancing innovation by about 20 percent. It also enables groups to spot risks, reducing these by up to 30 percent, and smooths the implementation of decisions by creating buy-in and trust.
AGNB IS EAGER TO BE EQUITABLE
DIVERSITY. EQUITY. INCLUSION.
Diversity and inclusion are woven into our purpose and values, and we value our employee's unique identities and experiences (including but not limited to disability, gender, gender expression, national origin, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, and veteran status). We’re committed to cultivating an environment that fosters respect, equity, and opportunity for all our employees—a place where you can bring your whole self to work.
How are we doing this?
Through Unity, Allyship, and Empowerment
Our employees have an intrinsic drive to collaborate, support one another, and pursue excellence. Providing an inclusive and welcoming environment, each BRG empowers our employees and their allies by advocating for their professional development, growth, and visibility.
Allies play a key role in fostering an environment of inclusion, belonging, and equity and are welcome and encouraged. Allies also play a huge role in facing bias, cross-cultural identities, grit, and more.
We believe diversity brings valuable perspectives to our work. Inclusion ensures those
perspectives make for richer, more innovative solutions for our clients.
The supplier diversity concept has evolved into what we see today -- an array of
small business owners from all ethnic, racial, gender and disadvantaged groups providing products and
services to government agencies, as well as major companies and corporations. Becoming part of this
group requires skill, dedication, and hard work.

Cyber Diplomacy Act 2021
This bill establishes requirements related to diplomatic engagement with foreign countries on matters of U.S. cyberspace policy. Specifically, the bill establishes the Bureau of International Cyberspace Policy within the Department of State to advise the State Department on cyberspace issues and lead diplomatic efforts on issues related to international cybersecurity, internet access and freedom, and international cyber threats. The bureau must undertake specified duties and responsibilities to implement the stated U.S. policy of working internationally to promote an open, interoperable, and secure internet governed by a multi-stakeholder model that (1) promotes human rights, democracy, and rule of law; and (2) respects privacy and guards against deception, fraud, and theft. The President must devise a strategy for U.S. engagement with foreign governments on international norms related to responsible state behavior in cyberspace. Further, the President is encouraged to enter into executive arrangements with foreign governments that support U.S. cyberspace policy. In addition, annual country reports on human rights practices must include assessments of freedom of expression in each country with respect to electronic information, and the Government Accountability Office must report on U.S. diplomatic processes and other efforts with foreign countries to advance U.S. interests in cyberspace.
