About Equal Opportunity

The ANG Equal Opportunity (EO) program is a function of leadership that formulates, directs and sustains a comprehensive effort to maximize human potential and prevent any personal, social or institutional barriers that could prevent Air Force members from rising to their highest potential.

Air Force policies are in place to maintain an environment free from unlawful discrimination including sexual harassment and ensure fair treatment for all based solely on merit, fitness and capability in support of mission readiness.

Discrimination & Sexual Harassment Hotline

Air National Guard members can contact the National Guard Equal Opportunity Hotline at (703) 607-5462 or 1-800-371-0617.
