Equal Opportunity and Equal Employment Opportunity Policy Statement


As the commanding officer for U.S. Naval Ship Repair Facility and Japan Regional Maintenance Center (SRF-JRMC), I am fully committed to national policies regarding equal treatment of all SRF-JRMC employees and applicants for employment. Our readiness and support of the U.S. 7th Fleet and the Department of Defense national security mission depends on the contribution of every member of our workforce.

Equal opportunity is recognized as an essential element of readiness. The successful attainment of our operational objectives rests in large part on our ability to attract, develop, and retain a top-quality workforce. It is essential that equal employment opportunity (EEO) is fully integrated into our mission with demonstrated commitment from leadership at all levels.

EEO policies and programs extend to all management practices and decisions, including recruitment and hiring practices, appraisal systems, promotions, and training and career development programs.  Our people are our most important asset, and it is our people that set us apart from any other organization. Therefore, our employee selection process is vital to our success. All personnel actions must be made on the basis of merit and without regard to race, color, age, religion, national origin, sex (including sexual orientation and gender identity), genetic information discrimination, pregnancy, physical/mental disability, or reprisal. 

All military members shall be afforded equal opportunity without discrimination based on race, religion, color, sex or national origin (including sexual orientation and gender identity). I request all personnel at every level to take an active role in preventing discrimination, and under no circumstance will reprise against a member filing a complaint be tolerated. Military members who encounter what they perceive to be discrimination may use the informal, formal or anonymous reporting process.  Individuals in the review or investigative process will be free from interference, coercion, discrimination, or retaliation during all facets of the submission and processing of a grievance and any time thereafter. Retaliation will be reported immediately to a supervisor, command managed equal opportunity officer, the commander, or the inspector general. Military members using the equal opportunity process must report incidents while still assigned to the activity where the incident occurred.

Managers and supervisors, supported by EEO and human resources personnel, are responsible and accountable for successful policy and program administration. Energetic support from our managers and supervisors throughout SRF-JRMC is essential to achieving equal opportunity for military members and EEO for U.S. civilian servants, Master Labor Contract (MLC) and contracted personnel. I expect every member of our workforce to take responsibility for implementing and enforcing the EEO policy. Together, we will ensure all military, MLC, U.S. civilian and contracted personnel are able to serve and work in a fair and equitable environment enabled by trustworthy leadership, continuous communication, and compliance with applicable Navy directives.

Avenues of redress. Sailors may use any appropriate avenue open to them by contacting their respective command managed equal opportunity (CMEO) advisor. U.S. civilian and contracted personnel may use any appropriate avenue open to them by contacting the Commander, Navy Region Japan (CNRJ) EEO Program Office at (DSN) 243-8163 / 9579 / 7092, or by sending email correspondence to Any MLC employee can report concerns or incidents of wrongdoing to their chain of command or to the command inspector general hotline by phone at (DSN) 243-1115, or e-mail:, or in-person to a C101IG representative.
