FedScoop senior technology reporter Carten Cardell reported from INSA's "The New IC" symposium on Thursday, May 17, 2018. (More content from The New IC, including video from each of the seven sessions, will be available soon. Check here for updates.)
"You must be a technology and you must be a data servant," Gordon said an Intelligence and National Security Alliance event examining the issue of gender equality in the intelligence community. "In 2018, the notion that technology is something that someone else does is going to kill us. Like cyber, every aspect and aspiration is going to move through technology. Those who cannot lead in technology will not be great leaders."
The INSA event focused on how to incorporate more female voices in positions of IC leadership. Gordon tied that theme to IT, saying that women have natural advantages that could benefit agencies when it comes to tech adoption.
