By definition, the alleged Qantas target for gender representation means that qualified male candidates will be passed over in favor of female candidates that meet threshold minimum requirements until such time as the target is deemed to be achieved. Basic maths.

That means also by definition that males with equal or higher skill levels than women will be rejected.

BUT after a year and or two on the job I believe there should be no measurable difference in performance PROVIDED training and assessment standards are uniformly applied.

If they aren’t, Qantas female pilots are going to destroy its safety record in the name of gender equity.
