EQUAL OPPORTUNITY IN THE NAVY Learning Objectives: When you finish this chapter, you will be able to— Identify the policies of the Command Managed Equal Opportunity Program. Recognize the purpose of equal opportunity and human rights. Recall  the  need  for  equal  opportunity  in  the following areas: performance evaluations, duty assignments, training and advancement, justice, service and recreational facilities, housing, and equal opportunity off base. Recognize the consequences of discrimination. According  to    Navy  Regulations,  Article  1164, “Equal opportunity shall be afforded to all on the basis of individual effort, performance, conduct, diligence, p o t e n t i a l ,   c a p a b i l i t i e s ,   a n d   t a l e n t s   w i t h o u t discrimination as to race, color, religion, creed, sex or national origin. Naval personnel shall demonstrate a strong  personal  commitment  to  stand  on  these principles and carry them out.” The  key word  in the title of this section is  equal. Real democracy cannot exist if our society doesn’t have equal opportunities for all of its people. Equality can’t be legislated; however, the law can serve to make sure that everyone receives equal treatment. The Navy is made up of people, and people in the Navy come from all parts of the United States and from other countries. They bring with them views common to t h e i r   r a c i a l ,   s o c i a l ,   r e l i g i o u s ,   a n d   e c o n o m i c backgrounds. For many years, the official policy of the Department of the Navy has been one of equal treatment and opportunity for all personnel, regardless of race, color, creed, sex, or national origin. The Navy carries out that policy through the Command Managed Equal Opportunity Program. The Chief of Naval Operations (CNO)  provides  the  guidance  and  policy  for  that program. COMMAND MANAGED EQUAL OPPORTUNITY PROGRAM The  Command  Managed  Equal  Opportunity (CMEO) is the Navy’s equal opportunity program. The Navy  requires  all  commands  to  set  up  a  CMEO program. CMEO allows the commanding officer (CO) to create and maintain a positive equal opportunity (EO) environment. CMEO also allows commands to identify and resolve command-level equal opportunity problems and  concerns.  Commands  can  closely  monitor  EO issues, and at the same time, remain flexible enough to use  only  the  manpower  required  for  any  given situation. Commanding officers must make equal opportunity a reality in their commands. They must ensure only merit,  ability,  performance,  and  potential  affect  a person’s promotion, training, duty assignment, or other personnel action. 1-14 Student Notes:
