On 13 March 2023, IWP’s China/Asia Program will launch a new event series, entitled “A Mentoring Series for Intelligence and Foreign Policy Careers,” the goal of which is to create more opportunities for IWP students, alumni, and prospective students to learn from and network with scholar-practitioners in the fields of intelligence and foreign policy.
As the purpose of this new event series is to help students gain insights firsthand from scholar-practitioners – mainly from the U.S. intelligence and foreign policy communities – the Program will invite guest speakers from various regional specialties – not specifically limited to Asia.
The inaugural event for this launch of a new mentoring series is with Dr. Jan Goldman who will present a virtual lecture on “Publishing with Intelligence.” Dr. Goldman is a professor of Intelligence and Security Studies at The Citadel. He also currently serves as an editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence, as well as the founding editor for professional textbooks in the Security Professionals Intelligence Education Series (S.P.I.E.S. at Rowman and Littlefield Publishers). He is a co-founder of the non-profit International Intelligence Ethics Association and a founding editor of the International Journal of Intelligence Ethics.
In addition, on 9 May, as part of this new mentoring series, the China/Asia Program will host John Guyant, who formerly headed the CIA’s Recruitment Center, to share his insights on the Agency’s mission as well as the Agency’s new hiring process.
