Equal Opportunity


We are committed to ensuring Equal Opportunity for each Soldier. The Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center and Presidio of Monterey Equal Opportunity leaders, managers and supervisors shall ensure that individuals are judged solely on the basis of merit and ability and with respect for the differences that make us stronger.

Our nation's diversity is one of its most enduring strengths. A workplace free from unlawful discrimination and reflective of our nation's diversity is central to maintaining a mission-ready workforce. It is essential we maintain an environment free of harassment, including verbal or physical conduct that creates an intimidating or hostile work environment for any individual.

We are fully aware that achieving these goals will require both a sincere commitment to and active participation in our Equal Opportunity efforts. That is our expectation of our leaders, managers, supervisors and employees. Our office is fully committed to ensuring all personnel have the maximum opportunity for selection, advancement, retention and recognition.

Therefore, we charge our leaders to empower Soldiers with the means necessary to reach their full potential. We also expect each Soldier to demonstrate his or her talents and cooperation in helping our leaders meet this expectation.
