Women in National Security LIVE with Kathryn McMullan, Kim Brennan, Nu Nu Win and Olivia Shen

What changes should the national security community be focused on? 

What do whole-of-nation and whole-of-government approaches to change look like?  

And how can national security objectives integrate with these efforts to drive change? 


As part of the annual Women in National Security event, the ANU National Security College had the pleasure of hosting over 250 attendees for a live podcast recording at the National Gallery of Australia. In this episode Kathryn McMullan, Kim Brennan and Nu Nu Win, join Olivia Shen to  discuss the changes that will shape Australia’s national security community. Questions from the audience had the panel addressing issues of cultural representation, intersectionality and social cohesion in national security.
