The Aerospace and Defence Industry has had long-standing diversity issues. These have not gone away during the Covid-19 pandemic. In fact, attention being diverted elsewhere means more will need be done when we start to normalise.
Many companies are aware of the disparity that exists and are proactively seeking ways to better represent the communities they serve. But the diversity challenge is still causing headaches for many sector leaders, not least because of the headlines generated whenever gender pay gap or BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) recruitment statistics are published.
However, headlines can often be misleading, and while efforts are being made to address the inequalities that exist, we must not overlook the excellent progress made over recent years.
