DEFxDC Conference | Innovating Change: From Design Thinking to Designing Policy

July 13, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT

DEFxDC is a day-long event co-hosted by the Defense Entrepreneurs Forum and Georgetown’s Center for Security Studies. This year’s theme is “Innovating Change: From Design Thinking to Designing Policy.” We will address challenges and opportunities facing the national security policy community and show conference participants how to design and implement through solutions. The event is open to all, civilian or military at all levels, who are interested in shaping the defense and security conversation. The day will start with a networking breakfast, includes lunch, and will conclude with a happy hour to continue networking and sharing ideas.

The conference lineup features a wide range of military and civilian leaders, including:

  • Loren Schulman, of CNAS and co-host of the Bombshell podcast from War on the Rocks
