WASHINGTON -- The Navy announced Jan. 12, that it is soliciting feedback from Sailors through the biennial Personal and Professional Choices Survey.

This secretary of the Navy-directed survey collects data and comments from Sailors across the Fleet to gauge the present-day impact of Navy policies on Sailors and their families. The survey touches on a wide variety of issues, including career development, work-life balance, adoption leave and family planning.

The 2018 iteration of the survey is scheduled to begin Jan. 17, and close Feb. 23. The survey will be sent to 80,000 randomly selected active-duty Sailors. Notification emails will be sent to participants from the survey platform Max.gov, urging Sailors to use this opportunity to provide their feedback to the Navy. Although participation is anonymous and completely voluntary, Navy leadership strongly encourages the selected Sailors to participate.

Results from previous surveys are available at www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/support/inclusion/Pages/Resources.aspx.

The 2018 survey results are expected to be released in August and will be posted on Navy's Inclusion and Diversity website.

Questions on the survey may be addressed to the Office of Inclusion and Diversity (OPNAV N1D) at ALTN_N1D@navy.mil.
