Abstract:

Equal opportunity EO, the keystone for quality of life, transcends current budget concerns and endures as a main focus of attention for Navy leadership. Fiscal year 1989 was the beginning of resurgent attention directed towards enhancing EO Navy-wide, engendered by the 1988 Chief of Naval Operations CNO directed study of EO in the Navy. CNO approved 66 actions designed to improve Navys EO environment and over a third of these actions are implemented in 1989. Navy endeavors to enhance EO have concentrated on Command Managed Equal Opportunity CMEO, EO training, the Navy Affirmative Action Plan NAAP, Equal Opportunity Program Specialists EOPS, increasing minority accessions, reducing attrition, improving the distribution and assignment of minorities, equitable advancement and promotion opportunity, and balanced career progression. Navy leadership is committed to a renewed emphasis on EO that builds on past gains. Improved quality of life for Navy personnel, increased readiness, and sustained mission accomplishment can be attained only if EO remains in the forefront. Navy has made notable progress in increasing the inventory of minority officers, Black enlisted composition, and retaining minorities however, there continues to be areas in which progress has been sluggish.
