Lunch with the Former F.B.I. Agent & International Geopolitical Consultant
Here’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience built around a woman, national security, terrorism and spies. Have lunch with Lauren C. Anderson in New York City.
Lauren C. Anderson was one of the first women on a SWAT team working terrorism and espionage cases and the first woman to run the FBI's office at the American Embassy in Paris in the immediate aftermath of 9/11. A groundbreaking woman in a largely male and dangerous profession—she managed the FBI's relationships in 24 countries, 22 of which were in Africa and most of which don't have a high regard for girls or women. She led the FBI's International Terrorism Investigations and Operations for the New York Office's Joint Terrorism Task Force, where her teams disrupted numerous terrorist plots.
After 29 years at the FBI, Anderson retired in 2012, and she continues to redefine power through her work as an international geopolitical consultant including helping women and youth around the world find their power.
How did she get into the FBI? How did she handle investigations in other nations, some of which where she was a potential target for kidnapping and assault? And how did she pivot? Here's your chance to find out!
