As our national conversation on systemic racism continues, Foreign Policy for America partnered with WCAPS (Women of Color Advancing Peace, Security, and Conflict Transformation) and Colombe Foundation for the third in a series of conversations on race and foreign policy. In this discussion, we hosted a panel of distinguished leaders for a conversation on the consequences of discrimination within the national security bureaucracy, how it affects implementation of U.S. foreign policy, and potential ways to remove obstacles to diversity.
