Our Culture

The Royal Australian Navy recognises that an organisation’s culture is fundamental to its ability to achieve its mission, which is shaped by its people.

We have an enduring cultural improvement program which is founded on Our Values and supported by Our Behaviours.

Our program, aligned with wider Defence cultural reform, guides our people to be a more capable and agile Navy; a Navy held in the highest regard by the Australian people; and a Navy that we will be proud to hand over to our successors.

The outcome is a modern sailor who embraces change, is inclusive and strives to make Navy better.
