EQUAL OPPORTUNITY ADVISORS (EOA) COURSE
Promoting Equality Within The Army
Maintaining equality in the workplace is important to the Army. In the Equal Opportunity Advisors Course, students learn how to identify discrimination cases and promote equality.
The curriculum develops a base of knowledge and skills that allow graduates to assess human relations climates in the organizations they serve, and to provide advice and assistance to Commanders to prevent, reduce or eliminate discriminatory practices.
The course uses a building-block concept of training. Studies progress from communications to individual and group behavior, through studies of major ethnic groups, aspects of power and discrimination, and EO advisor skills, and conclude with Service-specific studies. Graduates are qualified to serve as full-time EO advisors.
