Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Commitment to our employees begins with our hiring practices. For those who may considering joining our team, applicants can be certain that our promise is to give everyone a fair chance, regardless of their background, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, or disability; not because it is a legal requirement, but because it is the right thing to do.

DKW is proud to employ a diverse corporate team that is 65% female and an overall workforce that is over 60% minority.

We are champions of diversity and inclusion, and we value each of our teammates.

“As a minority owned and operated company many think diversity and inclusion might come naturally. However, we take many steps to ensure our hiring practices are not only compliant with equal employment laws and regulations but exceed expectations that include initiatives that help put DKW’s diversity at the forefront.”



At DKW, we understand the workplace that we foster, and employee benefits are key to attracting and retaining the best talent we can find. We offer a vast array of competitive and comprehensive benefits to suit the lives of our employees.

I started working at the DKW Headquarters office in November 2015 and have chosen to stay with the company because of the friendly, family-oriented environment, their compassion for family issues, the employees, and the overall morale of the office. I have a great supervisor and a team of coworkers.  What I love about my job is doing personnel security and having an impact on employees who become a part of this team and organization. Another aspect is the response I receive after an employee receives their access. They are so overjoyed and ready to start work and that makes my day. I have a great rapport with the employees in assisting them with their issues, and the thanks and gratitude I receive from them makes me enjoy my job even more.

Good people, good pay and good benefits. I’m treated like a valued member of the team not just an employee. I work with a team of talented technicians keeping the Navy trainers up and running. I work with the latest technology in a fast-paced environment that is always challenging yet always fun.
