In January 2016, former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter opened all military positions to women. Since then, more than 640 women in the Army and 180 women in the Marines have entered previously closed artillery and combat engineer jobs. This panel discussion will shed light on the status of gender integration in the military.

Building on former "Warrior Women" panels, this discussion also seeks to empower young people - particularly women - to pursue careers in national security by shedding light on opportunities available in the armed forces, as civilians and warfighters. Three panelists with current and former careers in the military will provide insight on their career paths, hurdles women experience in the field and strategies for career success.

Moderated by Jennifer McArdle, assistant professor in the Department of Adminisration of Justice, the panel will include:

  • Andrea Goldstein, co-founder and CEO, Tiresias International
  • Dr. David Smith, associate professor, Naval War College
