Warrior Women: Science and Tech Edition


Dr. Andrea Limbago, Chief Social Scientist, Endgame

Dr. Elizabeth Prescott, Director of Curriculum for Science, Technology, and International Affairs, Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service

Moderator: Jennifer McArdle, assistant professor in the Department of Administration of Justice and a Fellow in Defense Studies at the American Foreign Policy Council

Throughout history, cycles of technological innovation have fundamentally altered society, with profound implications for national security. From the rise of artificial intelligence and autonomy, to bioengineering, and the use of cyber and information weapons, new science and technologies change the national security landscape and raise interesting policy dilemmas that the defense and national security community must grapple with.

This second panel discussion in the Warrior Women series seeks to empower young people—particularly women—to pursue careers in national security. This panel discussion focuses specifically on science and technology careers in national security and is meant to appeal to people with traditional science and technology backgrounds, as well as those with classic liberal arts degrees. The two panelists—one a biologist by training and the other a political scientist—will discuss career opportunities in tech and national security available to young people, hurdles women experience in the field, and strategies for career success. The panel will close with a discussion of some cutting-edge tech and national security issues. A question-and-answer session will follow.
