As an aid to “fsav81”, I say bring on the quotas ——– but firstly to the board room not the aircraft cabin.
Never say that there are not the people to be employed as we know it is false. If you do not look you do not find.

Quota based hiring strategies rarely work. Talent should always be the starting point. Qualified to excel in a role through experience and/or technical skill. Of course the aim has to be creating a diverse and balanced cohort, but if that becomes the primary goal then things are likely to turn out badly.15 Feb 2024
The reality is 71% of the US is white, 82% of the UK is white. I think having targets to reflect the actual ethnic make-up of the nations is appropriate. Unfortunately, I think many of these ideas go beyond targets, they become quotas, often to the detriment of some groups, which of course is reverse racism/sexism. These issues are incredibly difficult to discuss in today’s world. I can say from experience, that the bank I work for has been sanctioned for discriminatory hiring practices by regulators for excluding white males to meet diversity quotas, and internally we are now ‘encouraged to consider the wider implications of hiring decisions’.15 Feb 2024
The whole idea is unworkable, unnecessary and potentially damaging.
This sort of nonsense has been discussed and discarded over the years and is nothing more than a needless distraction dug up once more by the wok brigade and presented as new thinking.
Thankfully they have begun to retreat (but not without much damage having been caused) realising one hopes that their immature skewed ideas are not original and have once again proved to be unworkable and damaging in the real world.
Thankfully most but not all) here in Asia have roundly rejected this wok distraction.16 Feb 2024
I appreciate this is an anonymous forum so you may not be able to answer but is the regulator report on your bank’s practices in the public domain? If so, are you able to give any hints that would allow me to track it down?
I am professionally interested in discrimination law as it crosses over into my work as a statistician in the field of pay gap analysis and diversity statistics.16 Feb 2024
Discrimination against white males has already happened in the UK in the RAF of all places!
It took the resignation of a high ranking woman to bring this in the open.
