THIS WEEK'S WORD: HIERARCHY
A bit rough, but it's the idea that's important. Here's the insignia of the British Royal Navy. There is only one female Commodore in the UK (Carolyn Stait) and Admiral Amjad Hussain holds the highest position of any ethic minority serviceman in the Navy.
Incidently, it would appear that only 1% of Navy servicemen and women are from ethnic minorities and women can only apply for 71% of roles open to men. Seems there's a long way to go...
On a more positive note, everyone here gets on with the job at hand, even the Admiral of the Fleet!
