Online Event: UPDATE: Maritime Security Dialogue: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the U.S. Navy

October 1, 2020 • 2:00 – 3:00 pm EDT

Please join CSIS and the U.S. Naval Institute for a Maritime Security Dialogue online event featuring a discussion with VADM John B. Nowell, Jr., USN, Chief of Naval Personnel, on diversity, equity, and inclusion in the U.S. Navy.

The Maritime Security Dialogue series brings together CSIS and the U.S. Naval Institute, two of the nation's most respected non-partisan institutions. The series highlights the particular challenges facing the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard, from national level maritime policy to naval concept development and program design. Given budgetary challenges, technological opportunities, and ongoing strategic adjustments, the nature and employment of U.S. maritime forces are likely to undergo significant change over the next ten to fifteen years. The Maritime Security Dialogue provides an unmatched forum for discussion of these issues with the nation’s maritime leaders.

There is a new Naval Institute Essay Contest focused on the topic of diversity and inclusion in the Sea Services. Deadlines for essay submissions will be 31 January 2021 and you can find additional details at

This event is made possible by support from Huntington Ingalls Industries.
