Panel discussion focusing on gender issues in today’s military
Panelists with current and former careers in the military will discuss gender issues in today’s armed forces when they participate in the “Warrior Women” series at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 19 in the Bazarsky Lecture Hall.
In January 2016, former secretary of defense Ash Carter opened all military positions to women. Since that moment, more than 640 women in the Army and 180 women in the Marines have entered previously closed artillery and combat engineer jobs.
The discussion will explore the status of gender integration in the military. Building on former “Warrior Women” panels, it also seeks to empower young people – particularly women – to pursue careers in national security by shedding light on opportunities available in the armed forces.
Moderated by Jennifer McArdle, assistant professor in the Department of Administration of Justice, the panel will include:
- Andrea Goldstein, co-founder and CEO, Tiresias International
- David Smith, associate professor, Naval War College
The panel discussion is sponsored by the Department of Administration of Justice and the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy. To RSVP, visit the Pell Center’s Eventbrite page.
