In accordance with Section 557 of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) requires DoD to sponsor research to assess existing barriers to minority participation in specialized units, including Special Operations Forces (SOF) and pilot and navigator military occupational specialties.
To meet FY 2021 NDAA Section 557 congressional requirements to understand barriers that may prevent women and ethnic/racial minorities from joining and remaining in “covered units,” IDA will need to collect primary data through focus groups. This information collection is essential to the mission of DoD as underrepresentation of minorities in certain units and occupational specialties hampers readiness and retention.
