Historically, political appointees have been disproportionately white and male as compared with the U.S. population. Our entire webinar series will address gender, and we hope to address intersectional issues throughout the series as well. However, we wanted to create a specific space to inform future political appointees about the important considerations of race and intersectionality in the political appointments process. We encourage allies and people interested in expanding their understanding of these issues to attend this webinar. Anyone who ascends to national security leadership will need to be culturally competent to address these issues.
This session will not be recorded. Outcomes or recommendations from the session will be reported out without attribution under Chatham House Rules.
