What is the Equal Opportunity Facilitators Program?
The role of the Equal Opportunity Facilitators or EOF is twofold. Our primary obligation is to respond to instances of inequality. This not only includes serving as an Equity Officer (EO) at tournaments but also stepping in, when people act unjustly in GA, at socials, or on our own teams. Our job isn’t to be punitive or the designated intervener but to make sure everyone has the ability to participate without feeling mentally or physically unsafe. Our secondary obligation is to prevent instances of inequity by educating peers one on one, participating with other committees, creating informational materials, and being a role model. These actions can make APDA safer as a whole.
