  • About the Edition

    The relative lack of minorities in certain military career fields has a significant impact on the diversity of the senior leadership. The relationship between career field choice, race/ethnicity, and membership in the senior officer corps appears to stem, at least in part, from racial and ethnic differences in the occupational preferences of officer cadets. The authors urge a full-scale study to learn the reasons behind these preferences.

MB: I have not experienced, either as a transitioning military officer, or as an executive recruiter, any organizations, regardless of their size, devoting resources to helping retired military officers assimilate. The service requirement attached to attending one of the three military academies might be shortened, in order to encourage more military officers to pursue careers in civilian society.
