What are the current and past efforts of the Army?

The Army has enacted a range of initiatives, to include training to elevate unconscious bias awareness and mitigate its impacts. The Army is taking substantive actions to ensure promotion and selection boards to be fair and impartial. Project Inclusion will include the following initial measures:

Updating its Diversity and Inclusion training across the Professional Military Education from the ranks of Private to the General Officers and Senior Executive Service Members.

Suspending use of the DA photo from all promotion boards beginning August 2020.

Redacting race, ethnicity, and gender data from both the Officer and Enlisted Record Briefs

The Army Equity and Inclusion Agency and the Office of the Inspector General will conduct listening sessions in the upcoming weeks visiting Soldiers and Army Civilians based worldwide to converse on race, diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The Army will conduct an assessment of any possible racial disparity within the Military Justice cases and specifically focus on AWOL, urinalysis, sexual assault, and sexual harassment to determine whether or not there is a trend for bias.
