II Marine Expeditionary Force Equal Opportunity Advisor

The Marine Corps will provide equal opportunity for all military members without regard to race, color, religion, sex (to include sexual harrasment), sexual orientation or national origin, consistent with the law, regulations, and requirements for physical and mental abilities. The achievement and maintenance of this goal is integral to the full development of esprit de corps, pride and individual preparedness which are essential to combat readiness.  

   The II MEF Equal Opportunity (EO) program facilitates, directs, and sustains a comprehensive effort to maximize human potential by ensuring fair treatment for military personnel, family members, and civilians without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, and provide an environment free of sexual harassment, unlawful discrimination and offensive behavior.
