Please join CPL, Women in Defense, Diplomacy, and Development (W3D), and the Armed Forces Committee for a lunch discussion with CPL co-director Professor Dana Born, Brig. Gen. (USAF Ret.) and CPL Hauser Leader Nadja West, LTG (USA Ret.). The two will discuss what led them to pursue public service and they'll share leadership lessons from their remarkable military careers. All students are welcome to attend!

W3D is a student organization at the Harvard Kennedy School that, in collaboration with the Belfer Center, works to connect, mentor, and empower women whom aspire to enter or rise these traditionally-male dominated fields. We launched the Female Faculty Lunch Series to create a unique opportunity for professors and students to engage in robust conversations in smaller group settings. Past discussions have focused on current research projects, previous work experiences, navigating career paths, and empowering women in these fields. The series has been very popular among students as another avenue to connect with professors outside of the classroom. 

The Armed Forces Committee is a student-led organization that hosts discussions on national security institutions and issues, promotes volunteer work to support veteran's issues, and facilitates networking between military veterans and students interested in defense policy.
