The Equal Employment Opportunity Office provides its customers with timely, relevant, and accurate strategies to create and maintain a culture of inclusion and fairness throughout the DoD OIG workforce. EEO operates to ensure all individuals are provided a full and fair opportunity for employment, career advancement and access to programs without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, disability (physical or mental), gender, age, sexual orientation, genetic information or parental status. Our focus is to help the Agency fulfill its strategic goals to “Engage, enable and empower our people,” and “Achieve excellence through unity.”



The EEO is committed to creating and sustaining a diverse workforce, providing Equal Opportunity for all, and helping to foster the vision of "One Professional Team" within the DoD OIG.

If you believe you have encountered discrimination or harassment at the DoD OIG based on your race, color, religion, sex (including sexual harassment), national origin, age, mental or physical disability or retaliation (engagement in prior EEO activities), you should contact us within 45 days of the alleged discriminatory action at (703) 604-9710.
