In order to be as inclusive as possible and reflect that all Navy occupations are open to men and women, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus recently met with his leadership team to discuss the service's enlisted rating titles review. Attendees at the meeting agreed to develop a new approach to enlisted ratings that provides greater detailing flexibility, training and credentialing opportunities and is more gender inclusive. A second working group will study how potential changes to rating titles may affect related personnel policy issues. Results of that review are expected to be completed and announced later this fall.
