Welcome to the Fort Benning Installation Equal Opportunity Office webpage. The concept of the EO program is to formulate, direct, and sustain a comprehensive effort to maximize human potential and to ensure fair treatment for all persons based solely on merit, fitness, and capability, in support of readiness. EO philosophy is based on fairness, justice, and equity. It places the responsibility for sustaining a positive EO climate within a unit on its commander. The program is designed to:

Provide EO for military personnel and family members, both on and off post and within the laws of localities, states, and host nations. Create and sustain effective units by eliminating discriminatory behaviors or practices that undermine teamwork, mutual respect, loyalty, and shared sacrifice of the men and women of America's Army.
