Mission

The TRADOC Equal Opportunity (EO) Office assists commanders in their efforts to formulate and sustain a comprehensive effort to maximize human potential and to ensure fair treatment of all persons based solely on merit, fitness, and capability in support of readiness.

Through the cooperative efforts of unit commanders and the EO Advisors, the goal of the EO Program is to create and sustain effective units by eliminating discriminatory behaviors or practices that undermine teamwork, mutual respect, loyalty, and shared sacrifice of the military members and their family members assigned to this installation.


About Equal Opportunity

The Equal Opportunity (EO) program formulates, directs, and sustains a comprehensive effort to maximize human potential and to ensure fair treatment for all based solely on merit, fitness, and capability which all support readiness. EO is a responsibility of leadership and a function of command. This philosophy is based on fairness, justice, and equity. Commanders are responsible for sustaining a positive EO climate within their units.

Functions
  • Equal Opportunity 
  • EO Staff Assistance Visits 
Goals
  • Provide EO for military personnel, civilians, and family members both on and off post and within the limits of the laws of localities, states, and host nations.

  • Additionally, in many circumstances, DA civilians may use the Equal Employment Opportunity complaint system. Army Regulation (AR) 690-600 provides further guidance.

  • Contribute to mission accomplishment, cohesion, and readiness.

  • Civilian employees of the Department of the Army (DA) may lodge complaints under this regulation that can result in an official investigation and possible disciplinary action against the Soldiers involved. They may also file discrimination complaints in accordance with AR 690-600: Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Discrimination Complaints. However, civilian employees who engage in discriminatory actions are not subject to discipline under AR 690-20: Army Command Policy, but are subject to the separate procedures of AR 690-600.

  • Create and sustain effective units by eliminating discriminatory behaviors or practices that undermine teamwork, mutual respect, loyalty, and shared sacrifice of the men and women of America's Army.
