Panel discussion focusing on women in national security community

Empowering young women in national security will be the focus of an upcoming panel discussion sponsored by the Department of Administration of Justice and the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy. “Warrior Women” will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 27 in the Bazarsky Lecture Hall.

Women have historically been underrepresented in the national security community. A panel of distinguished female experts that represent a broad swath of the national security community will discuss career opportunities available to young people, hurdles women experience in the field and strategies for future career success. The panel will close by discussing some cutting-edge national security policy issues. A question-and-answer session will follow.

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

  • Jacquelyn G. Schneider – assistant professor, Naval War College Center for Naval Warfare Studies; core faculty member, Naval War College Center for Cyber Conflict Studies
  • Tara Murphy Dougherty – deployment strategist, Palantir Technologies, Inc.; non-resident senior associate, Center for Strategic and International Studies
  • Kellie Senecal – special agent, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
  • Marjorie Hunt – human factors intelligence analyst, Defense Intelligence Agency; adjunct professor, Salve Regina
