Equal Opportunity

The Equal Opportunity staff provides training, conducts informal inquiries, coordinates complaint investigations and conducts mediation of workplace disputes in the civilian workforce. They also provide human relations training, guidance in formal and informal equal opportunity and treatment complaints processing, conduct complaint clarifications, mediate complaints, perform wing climate assessments and provide awareness training on subjects relating to human relations (i.e., cultural diversity, sexual harassment and team building.)

We encourage people to use the chain of command and support early resolution of any human relations issue. We also offer mediation through the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) program to resolve issues involving potential conflicts.
