#NatSecGirlSquad is a professional development community for people committed to diversity and national defense. It also provides consulting and technical assistance to fed government agencies and contractors in the national security and defense space to strengthen their recruitment, retention, and development of diverse workforces.
- #NatSecGirlSquad offers a membership program that is open to all people. Our programming is focused on three pillars
Building expertise among women and their allies in national security and defense
- Building confidence in that expertise: meaning women’s belief and recognition in themselves as experts and the larger field recognizing and valuing their expertise
- Institutionalizing success and using leverage points within the existing system to better support members in reaching their own definition of success
Is #NatSecGirlSquad affiliated with a political party or movement?
- #NatSecGirlSquad is explicitly non-partisan. We actively encourage membership, participation, and contributions from all people who are committed to competent diversity in national security. Our membership requirements are that you follow our Code of Conduct.
NSGS also provides ad hoc support to its members, whether it is job searching, salary negotiations, difficult situations at work, preparing for deployment, or other. Our goal is always to meet the needs of our members, whatever they are and wherever they are.
