CO-SPONSORED EVENT: Developments in Critical Technology Sharing Among the United States and Its Allies: Lessons Learned from Past Experience and New Challenges and Opportunities

Since the world-changing events of 9/11, the U.S. Government has made numerous efforts to control critical technology in ways that allow such technology to be exported effectively to U.S. partners while restricting its transfer to U.S. adversaries. Such efforts have ranged from negotiating defense trade treaties with close U.S. allies (e.g., the UK and Australia) that allowed numerous license exemptions to be established under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) to undertaking a significant export control reform initiative that resulted in the transfer of thousands of items from the U.S. Munitions List (USML) to the Commerce Control List (CCL) and the expansion or creation of various license exceptions under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to facilitate efficient export of goods and technology to U.S. partners (e.g., License Exception STA).

Self Confidence is one of the hardest things to achieve, especially for women. WIIT is sharing inspirational musings by women leaders to combat this and help women be less ambivalent to LEAN IN and get to the top!

 Find your biggest obstacle, that thing that makes you feel most powerless, and ask yourself, ‘How do I fix this?’ That’s the fight you should devote your life to."
