The 2021 Education and Research team is bringing this year’s delegates exciting career and mentorship opportunities through writing workshops, fireside chats with national security professionals, employer presentations and more. These opportunities will be provided to delegates in the lead up to the Summit, as well as during the Career’s Fair on the day where delegates will have the chance to interact and chat to a range of employers in the national security sphere. This is a great chance for the delegates to network and build professional skills.
