About OED&I?  


To eliminate employment discrimination and promote equal employment opportunity, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace.


To be a model EEO program that protects rights and serves all Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division employees.


Our office supports the agency’s responsibility of maintaining a model EEO program.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidelines state that a model EEO program effectively considers and addresses concerns arising under both Title VII and Section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act. The six essential elements for a model EEO program, as outlined in the EEO Management Directive (MD) 715 are as follows:

  1. Demonstrated commitment from agency leadership
  2. Integration of EEO into the agency’s strategic mission
  3. Management and program accountability
  4. Proactive prevention of unlawful discrimination
  5. Efficiency
  6. Responsiveness and legal compliance.
