Part of good leadership is promoting and accepting change. While tradition is important, its really the dinosaurs of organizations that seem to hinder the evolution of the organization. I will be submitting a briefing note on this very topic so I'm interested in both pros and cons of promoting these types of hairstyles. Giving an answer showing that you have examined both sides of the coin gives a person more credence.
Here's a news flash; the main goal of the CAF isn't to 'promote diversity'. It is to defend the nation and the nation's interest, something along that line.
Some of us who have jobs that are centered and focused on that don't care about stupid things like dreadlocks being authorized in uniform. The fact you see this as a point of focus of your efforts and that you intend to take time to do a BN/SP on this topic makes me mad, because part of my tax dollars pay you the salary you'll be 'earning' while you pursue this stupid line of thinking.
How about doing something that makes the CAF stronger, improves the ability of your subordinates to do their job, or something you know...beneficial to the Forces. :
