Q3.   List the ways to report fraud, waste, and abuse. a. b. c. d. Q4.   For the Navy to maintain public confidence in its integrity,  naval  personnel  should  comply  with ____________________________________. 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 (CMEO) 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, potential,   capabilities,   and   talents   without 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 their   racial,   social,   religious,   and   economic 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  (CMEO)  Program.  The  Chief  of  Naval Operations (CNO) provides the guidance and policy for that program. COMMAND MANAGED EQUAL OPPORTUNITY (CMEO) PROGRAM The  Command  Managed  Equal  Opportunity (CMEO)  Program  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. PERFORMANCE EVALUATION IN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY The Navy evaluates every Navy member’s support of  the  equal  opportunity  program.  Personnel  in paygrades  E-1  through  E-9  receive  numeric  grades, based on a number scale, on overall annual performance evaluations  of  specific  traits.  Your  performance evaluation  will  reflect  your  attitude  toward  and  your conduct  in  support  of  the  Navy’s  equal  opportunity program. 1-14 Student Notes:
