Command Managed EO for Military
Command Managed Equal Opportunity (CMEO) is a management tool developed in May 1985. It was developed for commanding officers to assess the level of equal opportunity within their own commands and to identify possible areas of concern.
Although controlled primarily at the Command level, CMEO offers a management system by which the command can be responsive to higher echelons.
CMEO assists commanding officers by:
- Creating and maintaining a positive Equal Employment Opportunity (EO) climate within the command.
- Monitoring the command's EO climate over time.
- Ensuring that merit, ability, performance, and potential are factors which affect individual promotion, training, duty, assignments, etc.
- Overseeing the identification and resolution of EO/sexual harassment and other discrimination problems and concerns.
At the Command Level:
Equal Opportunity (EO) is an inseparable part of sound leadership. It is mandatory that commanders ensure the Navy's EO policy becomes an integral part of day-to-day personnel management. An environment of equal opportunity is essential to maintaining a high state of morale, discipline and readiness. Command monitoring of internal practices, as well as the EO climate, enables the commander, commanding officer, officer in charge or supervisor to take prompt action to prevent discriminatory practices that may hinder military effectiveness.
Civilian Employees are advised to contact your own activity's Deputy EEO Officer (DEEOO) prior to contacting any Command representative.
Military Members are advised to contact your own activity's Military Equal Opportunity Coordinator (MEOC) prior to contacting any Command representative.
