Please join the Intelligence Project for a webinar with non-resident fellows Dan Hoffman and Kristin Wood, who spent their careers as CIA officers operating in times of crisis and conflict across the globe. In this session, Kristin and Dan will address questions such as:

  • What does it mean to serve as a CIA officer during times of war and crisis? 
  • How do intelligence officers remain non-partisan and speak truth to power during times of societal upheaval and uncertainty?
  • What lessons can we draw from the intelligence community’s response to 9/11 to help inform our response the COVID-19 crisis?

From Angola to Afghanistan, Dan and Kristin will discuss their experiences and share lessons which can apply to the multi-dimensional crises we face today.
