The alleged move has prompted the head of recruitment for the Royal Air Force (RAF) - herself a senior female officer - to resign in recent days in protest.
Why should a black man or woman or non binary, gay, lesbian, queer, him, her...If you want a more representative workforce, pay the groups you want to attract, a bit more when they start.
Keep the same selection procedure though, so no compromise to standards.
Let's ignore the contribution from the Commonwealth during the two world wars, eh? Especially if and when it suits.To recruit more they need to make it more appealing for that type of group. Which is a hard slog, especially for minority groups who genuinely wouldn't risk there lives for queen and country as they do not believe in Britain, they're all concerned with the bad stuff we done 300 +years ago,
That's the factor that seems to be ignored in all areas and also relates to ethnic aspects - or can at times.They seem to forget that maybe 40% of women don't want to be in the air force...

Or perhaps those countries are now better educated and see the "mother country" for what it really is and was.
Do you not read the news?Has it been discovered that the forces are biased against employing women and/or people from ethnic minorities? If yes then that should of course be addressed. If it's the case that less women and ethnic minorities apply to join the forces for undefined reasons then fine, encourage those groups to apply during recruitment drives etc.
