In honor of Pride Month, Out in National Security (ONS) will host A Conversation with the USAF Undersecretary via Zoom on Thursday, June 30, 4:30-5:30 EDT.
ONS is thrilled to have the opportunity to provide a venue for community engagement with Ms. Gina Ortiz Jones, an inspiring leader!
Ms. Gina Ortiz Jones is the Under Secretary of the Air Force. She is responsible for the affairs of the Department of the Air Force, comprised of the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Space Force, to include organizing, training, and equipping Air and Space Forces and for the welfare of approximately 700,000 active duty, Guard, Reserve and civilian Airmen and Guardians and their families serving around the world. As the Under Secretary, she oversees the Department’s annual budget of more than $173 billion and directs strategy and policy development, risk management, weapons acquisition, technology investments and human resource management across a global enterprise.
She will share her experiences serving in the US Air Force, running for office, and becoming Under Secretary of the Air Force as a queer woman of color. The conversation will be moderated by Jimmy Santos, a class of 2021 ONS Honoree and Air Force Reservist.
