Abstract:

Over the past ten years the Marine Corps has not achieved appreciable gains in producing a steady stream of minority Senior and General Officers. The total percentage of minority officers in the Marine Corps today is 19, which is slightly higher than 18 of the minorities in the U.S. population, eligible for officer programs. However, the majority of this percentage represents the ranks of O-1 through O-4. Campaign Plans, policies, and procedures of the past are inconsistent, lack accountability in leadership to implement the policies, and do not produce lasting results. Additionally, mentoring is important in the process of being promoted at the Senior officer ranks between O-6 to O-10 and minority officers between the ranks of O-1 to O-4are rarely mentored during their career
