In an interactive seminar, the speakers will address questions including: why did they decide on a career in the armed forces? How did they go about pursuing their career paths? What do their jobs entail? How do they combine academic learning with combat and command experience? What are some of the key challenges they face? To what extent are some of these challenges gender-specific?
