The future of recruitment, retention, and education in national security

Monday, March 27, 2023, 9:00 a.m. – 1:15 p.m. EST

On March 27, the Brookings Institution’s Strobe Talbott Center for Security, Strategy, and Technology will resume holding its annual forum that convenes  the federal executive fellows (FEFs) from military services and federal agencies that spend a year as scholars with the Foreign Policy program with other experts to reflect on some of the most critical issues facing the national security community. 

This year’s forum will focus on the future of recruitment, retention, and education in the military and national security communities and on the importance of investing in personnel to maintain a competitive edge. The FEFs will host and moderate three panels and a keynote conversation with panelists from think tanks, academia, the private sector, and the U.S. military to discuss these matters and their role in national security in this era of great power competition.

Online viewers can submit questions by emailing or on Twitter @BrookingsFP using #HumanCapital.
