Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Strategic Equality Objectives 15 Jan 2018

    The MOD increasingly strives to become a more diverse and inclusive organisation. The defence diversity and inclusion strategy is currently being reviewed to ensure it is continuing to have the desired impact on the organisation. I look forward to publishing a paper later this year.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Strategic Equality Objectives 15 Jan 2018

    The hon. Lady will be aware of the latest advertising campaign that is going through. She is absolutely right that, if we are to reflect society, we must be able to recruit from right across society, and that includes BAME people and women as well. We have this target of 10% for BAME and 15% for women by 2020, and I hope we will achieve that.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Strategic Equality Objectives 15 Jan 2018

    I am grateful for my hon. Friend’s question. He will be aware that the “Be the Best” campaign continues, but he will also be aware that we must recruit from a diverse footprint. That means that we have to dispel some of the messages that are out there, and that is exactly what this new campaign is seeking to do.
