Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute

Propelled by the civil rights movement of the 1960's and to counteract a national policy of segregation and inequality, a practical Magna Carta for race relations training was issued in 1971 (DoDD 1322.11, Education and Training in Human/Race Relations for Military Personnel). The violent and nonviolent disorders of the late 1960's were the catalyst that convinced military leaders that race relations education must be provided to every member of the Armed Forces. An inter-Service task force examined the causes and possible cures of these racial disorders within the military. The task force, chaired by Air Force Major General Lucius Theus, resulted in Department of Defense Directive 1322.11. This directive established the Race Relations Education Board, and, in 1971, created the Defense Race Relations Institute (DRRI), the original name for DEOMI. Today, the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI) is the Department of Defense (DoD) joint training organization for Equal Opportunity (EO), Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) occupational training. DEOMI is the DoDs leading academic and research institution, offering a unique educational experience that prepares federal employees to lead, guide, and address human relations issues throughout the federal government. Accredited by the Council on Occupational Education since 1983, DEOMI implements a learner-centered curriculum offering challenging discussions, lectures, and activities. Since its creation, DEOMI has become a "Center of Excellence" postured to increase readiness by fostering positive human relations throughout the Armed Forces. The Institution trains selected military and civilian personnel from all Services and DoD agencies, to include the Coast Guard, National Guard, and Reserve. Once trained, graduates of DEOMIs EO and EEO courses are able to support their senior leaders and commanders on human relation matters, such as individual discrimination, sexual harassment, and other diversity and inclusion issues relevant to the federal workforce.
