SAN ANTONIO -- This week's Airman's Roll Call focuses on the differences between diversity and equal opportunity.

The Air Force makes a distinction between diversity and EO. Diversity is mission-oriented and leadership driven--the way we should embrace our differences and utilize them to better accomplish our mission. EO is compliance-oriented and legally driven--the bare minimum standards by which we must treat others

Diversity is broadly defined as a composite of individual characteristics, experiences, and abilities consistent with the Air Force Core Values and the Air Force Mission.
