UK Air Force suspends recruitment due to insufficient Gender, ethnic diversity : Reports

London, August 18 (UNI) UK Air Vice-Marshal Maria Byford, responsible for admitting new employees to the British air force, said she slowed down the recruitment of all new candidates after it turned out that the air force was not meeting the necessary goals for ethnic and gender diversity among employees, The Times newspaper reported on Thursday.
According to Byford, cited by The Times, the UK air force wants women and ethnic minorities to make up 40% and 20%, respectively, of new employees by 2030. Therefore, the military official asked the air force training center to suspend recruitment before next month's discussion of the new principles of admission by the UK Air Force Board.
Beford also denied claims that changes in recruitment could affect the UK air force's operational requirements.
