Overview

An important goal of equal opportunity managers is to create an environment free of discrimination and harassment, and address allegations of improper discriminatory conduct. Equal opportunity managers implement EO policies and develop initiatives, such as training, to proactively combat discrimination. They assist in investigations of discrimination and/or sexual harassment and racial incidents. They may also conduct community relations work.

Military Training

Officers typically enter the Military after they have completed a four-year college degree; enlisted service members can transition to officer positions through a variety of pathways and earn a degree while serving. Learn more about becoming officer, here.

Equal opportunity managers may have an education in management or personnel administration.
