Making our national security workforce reflect our nation

On FEDtalk this week, join host Jason Briefel for a roundtable discussion on diversity and inclusion in the U.S. national security workforce. The guests will discuss diversity gaps in national security and barriers to equal opportunity. Through their work, the guests have sought solutions to diversifying the national security workforce and bridging divides to help people of color and underrepresented groups succeed. The show will highlight work being done to create a culture of inclusivity in the national security space.

The conversation features Bunmi Akinnusotu, Advisory Board Member of the Diversity in National Security Network (DINSN); Maggie Feldman-Piltch, Founder of #NatSecGirlSquad; and Maryum Saifee, Visiting Senior Fellow at the Truman Center for National Policy.
