EO Training

Diversity in the Army 


Equal Opportunity in the Army

The Equal Opportunity (EO) program formulates, directs, and sustains a comprehensive effort to maximize human potential to ensure fair treatment for military personnel, family members, and civilians without regard to race, color, gender, religion, or national origin, and provide an environment free of unlawful discrimination and offensive behavior.

We must continue to recruit top talent to maintain the Army‚€™s national security role and the All-Volunteer Force. We will enhance the Army‚€™s position as an employer of choice, and allow a broader reach into communities where the Army has historically been of less familiarity. By taking action, the Army will remain competitive in the current battle for talent occurring among the corporate, government and academic sectors.

EO Specific Powerpoint

  • Maintaining equality in the workplace is important to the Army. In the Equal Opportunity Advisors Course, students learn how to identify discrimination cases and promote equality.
    The curriculum develops a base of knowledge and skills that allow graduates to assess human relations climates in the organizations they serve, and to provide advice and assistance to Commanders to prevent, reduce or eliminate discriminatory practices.
    The course uses a building-block concept of training. Studies progress from communications to individual and group behavior, through studies of major ethnic groups, aspects of power and discrimination, and EO advisor skills, and conclude with Service-specific studies. Graduates are qualified to serve as full-time EO advisors.
