Mission Statement: "To assist leaders in creating a cohesive unit"

Equal Opportunity is leadership. Not all issues are EO issues, but all EO issues are leadership issues.

Reference MCO P5354.1D w/ch1

Equal Opportunity is everyone's responsibility. Anyone who witnesses an act of discrimination has a responsibility to address, correct or report the inappropriate behavior immediately.

Mission

To incorporate equal opportunity (EO) into the Marine Corps' ethos and leadership philosophy.

Scope

The Marine Corps is built on the trust and teamwork shared between individual Marines and their leaders. Inherent in this trust is the understanding that fair, scrupulous, and unbiased treatment is the Marine Corps leadership standard. In keeping with this leadership philosophy, equal opportunity will be applied in every command policy, action, and program.
The responsibility for accomplishing equal opportunity is not dependent on authority or solely the function of any special staff officer. Rather, all Marines are expected to promote camaraderie among individuals, regardless of age, color, gender, race, religion, or national origin, by setting an example of unprejudiced actions and identifying unfair practices to higher authority via the chain of command.

Purpose

Unlawful discriminatory practices within the Marine Corps are counterproductive and unacceptable. Discrimination undermines morale, reduces combat readiness, and prevents maximum utilization and development of the Marine Corps' most vital asset, its "people".

What Does Your EOA Have To Offer?

  • DoD Certified Mediator
  • Provide guidance, advice, or assistance in all EO matters
  • Provide briefings or training on EO issues for assigned and tenant commands
  • Assist EORs with EO program information on complaint reporting and other reporting requirements
  • Identify trends and areas of concern, and develop methods for improving the EO climate
