AFGSC Women’s Leadership Symposium to address diversity and inclusion

Release Number: 010820

Air Force Global Strike Command will hold its third annual Women’s Leadership Symposium virtually Sept. 1-2, to enable an interactive dialogue discussing retention, purposeful resources and leadership methods addressing women’s challenges in the workplace, while creating new mentorship and networking opportunities.

This year’s symposium focuses on fostering inclusiveness and diversity within the command, in order to attract and retain Airmen across the Air Force.

Virtual attendees from across the command’s eight Air Force bases and two numbered Air Forces will have the opportunity to participate in interactive breakout sessions and panels which will provide Airmen valuable perspectives and leadership approaches.

Keynote speaker for the event is Chief Master Sgt. JoAnne S. Bass, the 19th Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force. Bass is the first woman and the first person of Asian-American descent to become the service’s highest-ranking enlisted member.

The symposium was originally scheduled for March, but delayed due to COVID-19.

Air Force Global Strike Command is comprised of more than 33,700 Airmen and civilians assigned to two numbered air forces, 11 wings, two geographically-separated squadrons and one detachment in the continental United States, and deployed to locations around the globe. The command oversees two-thirds of the Nation’s nuclear weapons including all bomber and Intercontinental Ballistic Missile operations for the U.S. Department of Defense.
