ABOUT OSAC’s Women in Security Program

OSAC’s new Women in Security Program encourages female perspectives and participation in OSAC initiatives; enhances diversity and inclusion in the security field; and empowers participants to ascend to leadership positions. Through these events, we hope to cultivate a diverse and supportive network that strives to enrich the security profession.

To get involved and to learn more, contact Rebecca Gomez at GomezRE@state.gov.


OSAC events are available to OSAC constituents with no attendance fee. However, there are significant OSAC event costs (catering, material and facilities) which are borne by the Bureau of Diplomatic Security, the International Security Foundation and supporting/hosting organizations. OSAC’s goal is to maximize the funding we receive to benefit our constituents with quality programs and events but reserves the right to limit individuals, who are frequent “no shows,” from registering. Their access would be on a space available basis. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
