The goal of the EO and ADR program is to improve mission effectiveness that can often be affected when destructive conflict elements are introduced into the workplace.
To achieve this goal, it is Air Force policy (AFI 36-2706) that no Airman (military or civilian), shall be discriminated against, harassed (including sexual harassment), unlawfully intimidated or threaten another Airman or civilian employee on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, disability, reprisal or genetic information.
The EO office provides general conflict education training and subject matter expertise as required in any specific EO and ADR germane to each situation. The EO staff also ensures individual EO complaints are fairly and thoroughly investigated, and kept confidential to the maximum extent possible.
In both military and civilian dispute processes the use of alternative dispute resolution (mediation and facilitation) is often the forum that is used to address the situation, and to bring about an early resolution of complaints.
Some of the services offered by the EO and ADR office include conflict management training as it relates to human interaction, formal and informal equal opportunity case processing, complaint inquiries, unit climate assessments, affirmative employment matters, cultural diversity awareness and the opportunity for early conflict resolution.
The Air Force Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Hotline is available 24 hours a day by calling 888-231-4058.
If you have questions, contact the EO office.
