National Security and Diversity: What Have We Learned and Where Are We Headed?

May 20, 2021 | 11:00 am to 12:00 pm | National Security Program

About the Event

The national security community has long been criticized for its lack of opportunity for women and minorities, despite efforts in recent years to hire and promote a more diverse workforce.  Join our distinguished panel as they share their experiences, discuss the implications of past and current practices, and explore how greater diversity can further U.S. national security objectives in the future.
