17th Training Wing Equal Opportunity

Mission: Continuously deliver model EO services to support Airmen and enhance organizational effectiveness for all active duty, dependents, applicants/civilian employees, and retirees; to include contractors on a case by case basis

Vision: Empowering Airmen with the resources to eradicate all forms of unlawful discrimination, harassment, and reprisal to advance an inclusive environment, and strengthen a culture that values and respects all. Foster a positive human relations climate, which promotes the full realization of equality of opportunity to all.

In both the mission and vision statements, the principal to our actions is an “Airmen Always” philosophy that is exemplified with the services we provide such as assisting in resolving conflict to the lowest possible level and by delivering climate assessments to Commanders through Defense Equal Opportunity Climate Survey (DEOCS).

It is the policy of the United States Government, the Department of Defense, and the Air Force not to condone or tolerate unlawful discrimination or harassment of any kind. This zero-tolerance policy ensures that once unlawful discrimination or harassment is alleged, immediate and appropriate action is taken to investigate and resolve the allegations, and that unlawful behavior is stopped. Any Airman, military or civilian, who engages in unlawful discriminatory practices or harassment of any kind may face disciplinary action. Air Force equal opportunity policy compliance is a function of leadership and command. Leaders and commanders will ensure all types of unlawful discrimination or harassment are stopped, and behavior corrected as soon as possible once they are made aware.
