Scope and Applicability

a. The DON Human Capital Strategy states that people are the Department's most valuable asset. Further, it recognizes that different people bring different talents and abilities, any of which could prove decisive for victory. Adherence to the principles of inclusion, non-discrimination and equal opportunity contributes to readiness by promoting respect, trust and cohesion among members of the workforce. Diversity also enhances readiness by inviting new perspectives and improved ideas to solve problems. In embracing this philosophy, the Department of the Navy can truly claim that its strength lies in its diversity.

b. All members of the Department, military and civilian, at all levels, must be committed to ensuring EO/EEO. We are required to do so by EO and EEO legislation in order to achieve our vision of EO/EEO in employment and a workplace free of unlawful discrimination. In addition, we are committed to EO because of our dedication to our core values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment. These are values that all Naval personnel should live by, and they are supported by our sound DON EO, EEO and Diversity regulations and policies.

c. By supporting diversity, we also support readiness, thereby enabling us to meet the changing demands of current and future missions. These practices contribute to our ability to recruit and retain the best and the brightest across the Total Force.

d. In this instruction, the term EO and EEO refer to the set of all regulations and policies applicable to the Department of the Navy, including, but not limited to, references (a) through (d).

e. Additionally, the term "diversity" encompasses not only the familiar categories of race, religion, age, gender, and national origin, but also all the different characteristics and attributes of individuals that enhance the DON's capabilities and mission readiness.

Purpose. To assign responsibility and authority for policy and oversight of Equal Opportunity (EO), Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO), and Diversity matters in the Department of the Navy (DON).
