26 January 2021

Diversity and Inclusion Levels of Ambition (LoAs) and associated delivery plans to increase representation of underrepresented groups across race, gender, sexual orientation and those with a disability have been communicated internally by each organisation within Defence to hold leadership to account and demonstrate a wholeforce commitment to them. These plans also cover activity designed to increase engagement across our workforce and ensure each member of Defence feels valued. The Ministry of Defence has been transparent with our people on these LoAs and is taking the necessary actions and approaches to drive forward progress towards achieving them.
