Nick recently wrote about “The Importance of Male Allies in the Women Empowering Defence Community

The defence sector still leans heavily male, especially in senior roles. This imbalance makes the support from male allies indispensable for enacting genuine change. One key consideration is to ensure a gender-diverse candidate pool for pivotal positions. A commitment to diversity isn’t just ethical but pragmatic; diverse teams have consistently proven to be more effective, thus making a compelling business case. By actively supporting gender diversity, we unlock a treasure trove of untapped potential, accelerating not only individual careers but the industry at large.
