This overview report discusses findings from the 2013 Workplace and Equal Opportunity Survey of Active Duty Members (2013 WEOA), a source of information for evaluating and assessing race/ethnicity-relations in the Services. Though the survey covers a number of topics (e.g., retention intentions, mentoring), the principal purpose of the 2013 WEOA was to report attitudes and perceptions about personnel programs and policies, including estimates of the incident rates and consequences of racial/ethnic harassment and discrimination. The survey examined Service members’ perceptions of personnel issues in the military and policies intended to ensure fair treatment and equal opportunity in the DoD. The 2013 WEOA included questions regarding Service members’ experiences of racial/ethnic harassment and discrimination in the 12 months before survey administration. It also included questions on members’ views of the effectiveness of DoD and Service-level trainings, policies, and programs to prevent and respond to incidents of racial/ethnic harassment and discrimination, as well as their perceptions of any progress the military and the nation have made in eliminating such incidents.
