The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and the Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at Johns Hopkins SAIS are pleased to introduce the Future Strategy Forum, a new initiative to connect women scholars who research national security with the practitioners who make it.
U.S. national security would be better served if all talent were empowered to contribute, regardless of gender, and if cutting-edge academic research spoke directly to practitioner communities. And yet, women remain underrepresented in national security research and policymaking, and national security academics remain siloed from policy. The Future Strategy Forum confronts these two challenges by bringing together female scholars and practitioners to address critical challenges and advance women in national security.
The inaugural conference, The Future of Force, featured all women-panels devoted to the changing character of warfare and potential new strategies for the United States and its partners.
This event is made possible with support from Smart Women Smart Power Initiative, the Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at Johns Hopkins University, and co-creators Sara Plana and Rachel Tecott, Ph.D. candidates at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
