The INSA Intelligence Champions Council (ICC) was formed in June 2012 and is aimed at developing careers in the field of Intelligence through inclusion, involvement and empowerment. The Council’s goals are to foster a dialogue between members of the Intelligence Community (IC) at different stages of their careers and across organizational boundaries. Additionally, the Council hopes to provide educational and informal training opportunities covering a broad range of issues including work life balance, entering the IC community, and moving between public and private sectors.
The IC benefits from a two-way learning street that assists experienced professionals and newcomers alike. The Council will strive to increase connectivity and build enduring relationships across generational, experience and organizational lines within the intelligence and national security communities. To achieve these goals the Council hosts a variety of networking and educational events specifically designed to reach out to professionals across the career spectrum. The goal of these events is to create an environment that promotes candid discussion between participants regardless of experience, gender, employer or sector (public or private); breakdown hierarchical barriers; and facilitate the transfer of knowledge to advance the leaders of today and tomorrow.
In September 2012 the council sponsored an event featuring John Pistole, Administrator of the Transportation Security Administration, and Linda Solomon, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP’s Homeland Security Practice Leader, who shared their own experiences and offer tips for charting a successful career in the IC.
The Council is co-chaired by Mike Thomas, Senior Vice President at Booz Allen Hamilton, and Nicole Gibson, Director at PwC.
