#NatSecGirlSquad: Conference Edition
The lack of women, people of color, and young people participating at leading national security and defense events is not a new problem. As we continue to work within existing institutions for competent diversity, #NatSecGirlSquad is thrilled launch a conference of our own.
#NatSecGirlSquad: Conference Edition will be a security, defense, and foreign policy event focused on understanding threats and exploring how to turn them into opportunities. A real conference, doing real work - lead, featuring, and including women, people of color, young people, and their male allies.
This is not a conference about being a woman in national security. This is a conference, and there will be women (and young people, and people of color, and queer people and and and).
