The Equal Employment Opportunity Office provides an effective Equal Employment Opportunity program at the Presidio of Monterey which promotes an environment free of discrimination based on race, age, sex, color, genetics, religion, national origin, physical and/or mental disability and/or reprisal.


  • Equal Employment Opportunity institutionalized as an integral part of the U.S. Army Garrison Presidio of Monterey mission.
  • A work environment free of unlawful discrimination.
  • A work force that values diversity.
  • EEO professionals who are responsive to the concerns of U.S. Army Garrison Presidio of Monterey leaders and employees.
  • EEO professionals who are experts in their field.

I am personally committed to ensuring Equal Employment Opportunity for each civilian. The Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center and Presidio of Monterey Equal Employment 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 that we maintain an environment free of harassment, including verbal or physical conduct that creates an intimidating or hostile work environment for any individual.

I am fully aware that achieving these goals will require both a sincere commitment to and active participation in our Equal Employment Opportunity efforts. That is my expectation of our leaders, managers, supervisors and employees. My office is fully committed to ensuring that all personnel have the maximum opportunity for selection, advancement, retention and recognition. Therefore, I charge our leaders to empower civilians with the means necessary to reach their full potential. I also expect each civilian to demonstrate their talents and cooperation in helping our leaders meet this expectation.

Through our united efforts to maintain sensitivity to our cultural differences and value the contributions of each member of our team, we will enhance our ability to accomplish the Department of the Army's mission.

Col. Sam Kline, Commander, Presidio of Monterey
Col. James Kievit, Commandant, Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center
