Office of Women's Policy (OWP)

 
 
 

The Office of Women's Policy (OWP) advocates for Navy Servicewomen throughout the enterprise to advise the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) and Chief of Naval Personnel (CNP) on policies and programs.  This is done via four lines of effort: 

1. Policy Development & Alignment - Ensure current policies are aligned with higher authorities (DoD, SECNAV, and OPNAV), revising and developing new policies, as necessary from input from key stakeholders and cultural indicators. 

2. Program Management & Development - Develop programs and mechanisms within the Navy Enterprise to obtain policy feedback and data, to include identifying barriers to retention. 

3. Policy & Program Analysis & Assessments - Analyze feedback to determine if policies concerning Navy Servicewomen are implemented and effective.  Feedback is obtained through conferences, summits, symposiums, surveys, listening sessions, and social media. 

4. Strategic Communications & Engagements - Provide strategic communications about policies, programs, and initiatives to internal and external audiences via social media, print media, and direct communications.  Engaging with the fleet, other services, civilian counterparts, and other internal and external key stakeholders.

Our vision is to see a Navy that mirrors the civilian sector workforce.  As of March 2022, the Navy has 20.5% women serving in both the active and reserve components. Our goal is to get to 50% women in the Navy by 2036.
