About Us

Celebrating Army Diversity.

 

The U.S. Army's greatest strength is our people. The Army firmly values the principles of diversity and inclusion and continues to lead American society in maximizing the potential of future leaders from all backgrounds. Diversity makes the Army better and more equipped to meet the challenges and threats of the future.


The U.S. Army Central Equal Opportunity (EO) Directorate designs activities and experiences to enhance cross-cultural awareness and promote harmony among all Soldiers, civilians, and family members who make up the U.S. Army Central team. 


Since 1968, the DoD has supported ethnic observances through the development of local programs of recognition. U.S. Army Central celebrates eight ethnic observances annually in support of Joint Congressional Resolutions and Presidential Proclamations:

 

  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday
  • African American/Black History Month
  • Women's History Month
  • "Days of Remembrance" for Victims of the Holocaust
  • Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month
  • Women's Equality Day
  • National Hispanic Heritage Month
  • National Native American Indian Heritage Month

These activities are extensions of the equal opportunity education and training objectives. They are set aside to recognize the achievements and contributions made by members of specific racial or ethnic groups in our society. The observances promote understanding, teamwork, harmony, pride, and esprit-de-corps among all groups, not just within the specific group being honored.


 

 

 

 

 

EO Complaints

 

U.S. Army Central strives to provide an environment free of unlawful discrimination and offensive behavior. 
 

The USARCENT EO Directorate formulates, directs, and sustains a comprehensive program in order to maximize human potential and ensure the fair treatment of Soldiers, Family members, and Civilians without regard to race, color, sex (to include gender identity), religion, national origin, or sexual orientation. 


Individuals are encouraged to use the chain of command to address Equal Opportunity (EO) complaints. If you believe discrimination has occurred in line with one or more of the following: race, color, sex (to include gender identity), religion, national origin, or sexual orientation, you should discuss the concern with an Equal Opportunity Advisor (EOA) who will strive to facilitate a resolution at the lowest level possible. 


The EO Office can help you by: 


  • Explaining the EO complaint process
  • Listening to and helping you identify your concerns
  • Reviewing your case objectively 
  • Discussing the concerns with those involved
  • Attempting informal resolution
  • Answering your questions


COMPLAINTS

 

Soldiers and Civilians have the right to present a complaint to the command without fear of intimidation, reprisal, or harassment. It is the individual's responsibility to submit only legitimate complaints and to exercise caution against unfounded or reckless charges. 


While not required, it is recommended that the individual attempt to resolve a complaint by first informing the alleged offender that the behavior MUST stop. 
 

INFORMAL COMPLAINT

An informal complaint is any complaint a Soldier, DA Civilian or Family member does not wish to file in writing. Informal complaints may be resolved directly by the individual, with the help of another unit member, the commander or other person in the complainant’s chain of command. Typically, the issue can be resolved through discussion, problem identification, and clarification of the issues. An informal complaint is not subject to time suspense.
 

FORMAL COMPLAINT 

A formal complaint is one that a complainant files in writing and swears to the accuracy of the information. Formal complaints require specific actions, are subject to timelines, and require documentation of the actions taken.
